The stories we tell: Local authors share work
Thirteen authors who either live in Covington County or are from here were on hand for a reception and signing party, “The Stories We Tell,” at the Andalusia Public Library Friday.
The event was part of Absolutely Andalusia: Homecoming 2010.
• Roland Pittman of Gantt, who has written both a biography and several novels. “My biography is mostly about Andalusia, because I was born here 82 years ago,” he said. Most of his work is fiction.
