It isn’t often that Billy Albertson accompanies me to book club meetings. Primarily because he’s a busy man. Even before I wrote In the Garden with Billy he was a busy man. Now, he has so many visitors, even I sometimes need to make an appointment to see him. As they say in the south, the Edenwilde ladies “must be living right.” Last week they received a treat. Billy Albertson joined their group. We came. We noshed. We stayed a very, long time. At one point I looked at the clock and said, “Law have mercy…it’s 10 o’clock!”
Thank you to Edenwilde for making Billy feel right at home, and to the other bookclubs that have read In the Garden with Billy: Lessons About Live, Love & Tomatoes. truly, you have touched my heart (Billy’s too).
Here are some comments from the group:
Amazing book club meeting last night in Edenwilde. Local author, Renea Winchester, along with Mr. “Billy”, came to share their book, In The Garden with Billy, a beautifully written account of how this unlikely pair met and became best friends. So endearing and delightful. We could all learn alot from Mr. “Billy”…he told some charming, funny stories about family and gardening. I believe you can order their book from amazon.
Such a delightful time at your house last night with Billy and Renae! I just loved listening to him talk and tell his stories…a treasure! ”
