Meet the Author & Book Signing Event

November 21, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


The Nancy Carol Roberts Memorial Library is hosting Addison Terry, Korean War veteran and award winning local author, for a signing of the entertaining and fast passed novel, What a Deal on Saturday, November 21st from 10am-3pm. You will discover the period of 1955 to 1970 to be a tsunami of change and progress in the southern United States. Commercial jet aircrafts pulled our east and west coast together and the interstate highways were being built. Downtown shopping was moving to the malls in the suburbs while television was becoming a must-have source of information and entertainment in most households. The two-car family was becoming the norm. And, most notably, the millions of GIs of World War II and Korea were graduating from college with knowledge and knowhow. They gave new life to old companies and started new ones in garages, barns, basements, drive-in restaurants, etc. Most importantly, they also started families creating demand for all matter of child and household consumer goods.

Into this high octane environment Elmo Jenkins descends, complete with a beautiful, spoiled wife; a beautiful, vivacious four-year-old daughter and bright, inquisitive five-year-old son. Elmo’s first job was with a 180-year-old cotton mill but within six months, the mill is in serious financial problems. Elmo enters the arena of high finance and within six weeks, he is in command of the situation. Within a year he successfully sells the Atlanta mill, gains a position on the board of a Charlotte mill, and has his sights on the largest real estate deal in Atlanta’s history. Keeping up with Elmo Jenkins is a fun-filled page turner!

Mr. Terry will be signing copies of What a Deal that will be available for purchase as well as discussing his fascinating life.

Mr. Terry currently lives in Washington County. Come by and meet this remarkable author!
