Today, my most anticipated read of 2013 came in the mail: The Lost Village of Barboursville. It’s written by my mom, Jeanette Rowsey.
Three or so years ago, mom would talk about going to the library and looking through old historical documents about Barboursville. I was on a U.S. history biography kick at the time, and I suggested that with all of this new stuff she was learning, she should write a book. I’m not taking any credit for it, because if somebody told me that I should write a book, I’d probably go, “Yeah,” and then keep doing what I always do. But today, it came in the mail, signed by my mom with the inscription, “Viva B’ville!”
Even if you don’t know about the small village down the street from where I grew up, I’m going to recommend this book. You can buy it here in five days.
Excited and proud.
