AUTHOR, FANNIE FLAGG AT CARMODYMCKNIGHT FOR A BOOK SIGNING, WINE FESTIVAL WEEKEND (SAT, MAY 22ND)
On May 21, Saturday, 12noon to 3PM, during Paso Robles Wine Festival Weekend, New Your Times bestselling author Fanny Flagg (Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe) will be at the vineyard for a book signing celebration featuring Ms. Flagg's new novel, "I Still Dream About You."
One of the heros of the book, Kathleen's "Leroy the Goat" will also be in attendance. Leroy fell in love with Fannie when she visited Marian and Gary at Carmody McKnight. Leroy's heart was broken when Fannie drove away for Alabama.
Not only did Fannie not forget little Leroy who had a big crush on her, she made him a prominent character in her novel. Leroy appears as a love sick goat--type casting!
