Please join Atlanta, Georgia author, Margaret McBride, for her book signing of “That Melvin Bray” at Brightside Gallery on October 17 from 1 to 4 pm, 170 Worth Street, Asheboro, NC. Margaret was born and raised in North Carolina—-right here in Randolph County! She and her husband live in Atlanta, Georgia where her writing began as an act of personal reflection and grew into the process of writing a novel.
“That Melvin Bray” is quite a reflection on Margaret’s childhood and growing up life here in Randolph County. She wrote this book to inspire people to forgive, to heal, to embrace a life filled with spiritual meaning and personal abundance. Margaret includes a mixture of personal insights and experiences with a heap of psychological ingenuity and a dash of lighthearted adventure to make this book quite an enjoyable ride through the 1950’s and 1960’s here in Asheboro and Randolph County.
Mark your calendars to stop in to meet Margaret and purchase her first novel, “That Melvin Bray.” Margaret is such a delightful, inspiring hometown girl……..you will not want to miss this opportunity!
