The April 2021 “atmore” magazine featured a piece on Alvin Farrar’s new book Of Smoke and Sand. This month, the book is available at Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
Of Smoke and Sand deals with the lives and events surrounding the fictional Badaraque Plantation in Baldwin County, Alabama beginning in 1835 until falling victim to the Civil War. It was a time of wealth and peace but also a later time of great violence.
Alvin, a 1969 graduate of Escambia County High School, resides in Laverne, Alabama.
Lou Vickery is well known as an inspirational speaker and author. He and his good friend Coach Sonny Smith team up now and then on different projects, the most recent being their latest book – Winning the Head Game … Key to Elite Athletic Status.
Next week, you’ll have an opportunity to get a copy signed by both authors at a book signing at First National Bank & Trust, Friday, September 10, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The regular price of the book is $16.95 but the “Atmore One Day Price” is $15.
Profits will go to charity.
