Helen Keller Library will host a book signing featuring two Shoals authors on May 6 from 3-5pm in the Library’s meeting room.  The public is invited.

Billy and Linda Johnson, a husband and wife writing team, recently published a delightful novel that should interest readers looking for a good summer read. "The Casserole Ladies" is a 241-page screwball comedy about five older, unmarried women living in a small Southern town who embark on a quest for postmortem romance. Differences in gender longevity in the United States mean that there are more unmarried older women than eligible bachelors for those women who desire male companionship. The book humorously explores how Daffy, Babs, Gidget, Lilly, and Lizzie cope with this imbalance. They experience a series of zany misadventures. Their most preposterous escapade and the book's climax occurs in Jacksonville, Florida at the "World's Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party." The Ladies ultimately resolve their problems in a totally unexpected way that leaves readers shaking their heads and laughing.

"The Casserole Ladies" is available on Amazon in eBook or paperback. You can visit Billy’s Facebook page at https://fb.me/Billy4GoodBooks

Confederate Memorial Park, a historic property of the Alabama Historical Commission located in Marbury, Alabama, will host a walking tour on Saturday, May 15, at 10am.  Visitors will explore the locations and ruins of the original structures that once occupied the site, as well as tours of a cemetery and the park’s museum.

At the beginning of the 20th century, many indigent Confederate veterans lived in Alabama.  Through Montgomery attorney and Confederate veteran, Jefferson Manly Falkner’s untiring efforts, the state of Alabama established the Alabama Confederate Soldiers’ Home in 1901, which served as the state’s only facility for the care of indigent Confederate veterans.

Today, Alabama’s only Confederate veterans’ home is incorporated into Confederate Memorial Park, which spans 102 acres of rolling wooded countryside near the center of the state. Life for the old soldiers, called “inmates,” was better than most had known before their arrival. The home provided housing, meals, clothing, allowances, medical care and, for many, a place to die and be buried with dignity.  The cost for the walking tour is $10 per person and can be paid at the museum prior to the 10 a.m. departure. To accommodate social distancing, the tour is allotted for a maximum of 15 participants. Please call the museum at 205-755-1990 to reserve your spot! Confederate Memorial Park is located at 437 Co Rd 63 in Marbury.

To learn more about Confederate Memorial Park, or the Alabama Historical Commission, please visit www.ahc.alabama.gov.
