Historical Fiction & Poetry

Indie Author Day

On Saturday, October 13, I’ll be selling and signing books at the Aiken Library from 10 AM until 5:00 PM during Indie Author Day. I attended last year and had a great time.

     It’s a good place to meet local authors as well discuss the art and craft of writing. I’ll be one of over twenty authors at tables located on the first floor of the library. 
Programs are scheduled throughout the day. I'd love to see you there!

The library address: 314 Chesterfield St. SW Aiken, SC 29801

This item was as common as a dipper or an iron kettle in early American kitchens. They were rarely used in the winter but were necessary to prepare a Sunday dinner in the summer. There are three in the photo above, but a family only needed one. What are they?
