2009 Southern Independent Book Association - Darden North signs with other authors










Excerpt from the SIBA Blog (http://www.wanda.sibaweb.com/?p=858):

"Authors went on the auction block Saturday night (September 26, 2009) to raise buckets of money for the local Greenville charity Loaves & Fishes. Authors “Tweeted” their answers to questions in an attempt to whet the appetite of bookstore owners who “bought” them for the evening to have dinner and chat at local restaurants. The brave authors featured were those whose books were nominated for 2009 SIBA Book of the Year Award.
