BONUS pics from Francis Marion trip!

I was pleasantly surprised to find a very kind note from Dr. Lance Weldy this morning when I opened my email, and he sent more pictures he took after the panel presentation when we were signing copies of Southern Perspectives on the Queer Movement: Committed to Home that people purchased…sweet.

Pretty and I sign books…

while lady who prepared yummy refreshments looks on.

Michael Haigler and Pat Patterson sign books

(while Pretty looks, well, pretty)

Pat talks, Pretty signs, while I eat probably my 10th. little sandwich

We had a great conversation with students Andi (l.) and Sierra

we were excited to hear their wedding plans after graduation

Thanks again to Michael, Lance, Pretty, and Pat for a fun time!

My special gratitude to all the students and faculty from Francis Marion University who came to the event and showed us and our book some love.

    Great pix!!! and congrats on such a wonderful tour you are having! I can’t get over those bars behind, though. My first thought wasn’t even a jail, but an animal shelter hahaha.

    This was a fantastic extra post of photographs, Sheila! You and Pretty look Great!
    Little sandwiches have Zero calories, it is true! Just like taking spoonfuls of “uncooked” cookie dough or tablespoons of mashed potatoes over the pot or kitchen sink don’t have calories either. Prep cooks don’t count them, so why should we?! 😀 😋
