PROMOTING "HELEN LaFRANCE FOLK ART MEMORIES" BOOK AT THOMASVILLE (GEORGIA) ANTIQUES SHOW FEB. 23-26th
I'm at the Thomasville (GA) Antiques Show to promote my book "Helen LaFrance Folk Art Memories" (by Kathy Moses, with Bruce Shelton, and foreword by Lee Kogan, American Folk Art Museum, New York). Thomasville is in southwest Georgia just aboveTallahassee and was a winter colony where the uber wealthy carved out shooting plantations and still maintain that lifestyle. Other authors at the show will be Libby Cameron & Susan Bartlett, the latter granddaughter to legendary interior designer Sister Parish, who worked on the Jock Whitney plantation outside of town; New York interior designer Thomas Jayne who applies historical materials to historical homes; and San Francisco floral designer Ron Morgan. I'm in good company! Should be a good time and hopefully many books will be sold!
