Wild Hare Books Hosts Two Book Signings

By Contributed Article

Anne Beverley, Signal Mountain artist and children's book author, will have a book signing at Wild Hare Books on Signal Mountain. The book signing will be Saturday, December 9 from 3 until 5 o'clock. Anne will also be signing prints, many of which are illustrations from her two books.

The books, Paddy & Crocus Croakums, Going Shopping, and the sequel, Going to the Circus, are a tale of two frogs on their journey to Hop n' Shop Market, a Pitcher Plant field across Bloombay Pond to collect insects, and the sequel, their adventures of going to the circus.

Anne, a licensed and published artist, moved to Signal Mountain a year ago from Pensacola, Florida; escaping the storms and returning to her native state of Tennessee. Many of her watercolors reflect the influence of the Gulf Coast. The beauty of the coastal marshlands inspired the story and illustrations in her book, “Paddy & Crocus Croakums, Going to the Market.” Pitcher Plants, marsh grass and lily pads are illustrated throughout the book, as well as wildlife of the coastal wetlands. A new book will be ready by spring, “Ditties & Doodles”, which is a collection of rhythms for children, written and illustrated by Anne Beverley.

Author/Photographer, Rob Clifton, will be visiting Wild Hare Books on Saturday, December 16th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. to sign copies of his new book, "Chattanooga Then and Now". Rob writes the following about his book:

"I got the inspiration to do the then and now style books while on a trip to Colorado. While visiting a museum I saw large photos of old mining towns. Next to the old photos were current photos of what the towns looked like today. I was fascinated by the idea of then and now. Most of the towns were smaller today than in the 1800s. I love looking at every detail of the old photos. I imagine what the people in the photos day may have been like on the day the photo was taken. While doing research for the "Chattanooga Then and Now" book I found hundreds of wonderful old photos that had been taken over 140 or so years starting about 1861.

The idea of this book is not to write the history of Chattanooga. The written history has already been done well. The idea of "Chattanooga Then and Now" is to present a pictorial history of Chattanooga. I want to show what Chattanooga looked like in the old days and how it has or has not changed over the many years of its rich history."
