HOUSE CALL and POINTS OF ORIGIN and the Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse


Author Darden North, MD, and Ponder House Press were priviledged to participate in the fundraiser for the Mississippi Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse held Saturday, January 12, 2008, at the Beau Rivage Resort in Biloxi, MS. Copies of North's novels POINTS OF ORIGIN in hardcover and HOUSE CALL in paperback were donated in appreciation to the sponsors and promoters of the well-received event. Fashion designer Deborah Kennedy and Camille Tate brought producers and stars from the long-running and popular The Bold and the Beautiful television series to Biloxi for "A Fashion Extravaganza" that auctioned many of the clothes and jewelry worn by the late Darlene Conley who played Sally Spectra on the show. Deborah Kennedy's designs were also featured in the fundraiser.

2018 MISSISSIPPI BOOK FESTIVAL

August 18, 2018, marked the fourth annual Mississippi Book Festival, an expanding and highly energetic literary lawn party gracing the beautiful, oak – draped grounds and surrounding buildings of the historic Mississippi State Capitol in downtown Jackson. The first two years of the festival, I worked as a volunteer in the Author Panelist room, having the opportunity to meet the visiting authors as well as local writers scheduled to present. In 2017 and again this year, I joined other writers outside in the Authors Alley tent on Mississippi Street, bordering the south lawn of the Capitol. This was an amazing opportunity to visit with many of my readers and to meet many new ones. Lots of signed books were discussed and placed in the hands of readers that Saturday in Authors Alley. Mid-August weather in Mississippi with its 90+ degree humidity will never dampen literary spirits, and fortunately we escaped the forecasted downpour! Thank you to Holly Lange and the other organizers and supp…
