Ron Oakley is a native of Alamance County, and he has written a book that you are just going to love – “Growing Up in Alamance County”. It’s a delightful account of our county – including a lot of anecdotes about Mebane and her families. Full of photographs and fascinating information, you’re going to love this book. You will also think of about four other people that will love it…like on Father’s Day!
We got this book hot off the press, and on Saturday, May 17th from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., Mr. Oakley will be at The Curious Peddler for a book signing – and to just chat about the book and our wonderful county. He’s just a delightful person to talk to, because he’s got so many great stories, he’s a treasure trove of information, and because he’s just so nice!
Come by, meet Mr. Oakley, chat with him, and buy his book! We’ll even wrap it for you.
See you tomorrow!
PS Some of the pictures in his book are from a collection owned by The Peddler. She got them in a big batch of stuff that she purchased at an auction – one of those times that she didn’t know what she had until she got home. But that’s another story for another day…
