Local, regional authors to appear for book signings

The Bookworm Box in downtown Sulphur Springs will be hosting a book signing from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. Readers will meet six authors, two with local connections, to talk to them about their books and writing.

Local author C.J. Davidson is one of the organizers. She says she writes novels with an element of fantasy literature, drama, action and romance for the young adult, according to her Facebook page. She also has a larger purpose in life. 

“My next step is to somehow help those affected by domestic violence. What hurts the most is when children are in the middle of it. It is my belief that no one should have to feel unsafe, living life on the edge, wondering when they are going to get hurt. Sleeping with one eye open is the worst feeling in the world,” she says at her website, cjdavidsonofficial.com.

Holly Hall is a previous resident of Sulphur Springs. Her first romance novel “Forever Grace” was published in 2016. She has written two others, also in the romance genre.

Fun, food, fitness

Forty-two kids went home from 4-H camp Friday sopping wet, with smiles and a bag full of loot. Participants spent the final hours of “Kids’ Camp: Fun, Food, Fitness” splashing and sliding in the sun at Jerry’s Jump Zone, in celebration of another successful year.

Campers met three mornings a week for three weeks at Sulphur Springs Elementary to learn about the five main food groups and food safety, and participate in physical and fun activities. Only students in grades 1-4 may participate in Kids Camp.
