Chipola River Book and Tea

I want to congratulate my friends at Chipola River Book and Tea on their second year in business in Marianna. They are located at 4402 Lafayette Street in downtown Marianna (directly across the street from the Battle of Marianna monument) and are the exclusive local retailer for my books.

Michael (a she, by the way) and the rest of the staff there have done a phenomenal job of bringing a much needed business to Jackson County. When she arrived in Marianna, she immediately noticed that the community needed a nice, local bookstore. So, she started one.

I discovered it during the summer and have been very impressed. She brings old books back to life and provides an outlet for local writers and artists.

As I mentioned a couple of days ago, I will be there on Saturday beginning at 10 a.m. to sign copies of The Battle of Marianna, Florida, The Battle of Natural Bridge, Florida and Two Egg, Florida.

If you can't make it on Saturday, drop by anytime. They carry my books as well as hundreds of others of interest.
