Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games Book Signing

September 28, 2010
10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The Kentucky Arts Council has invited me to do a book signing during the World Equestrian Games. This is such an honor for me! They plan to feature various authors (book signings), artist, & musicians (Demonstrating art & music) from across Kentucky.

The proceeds from any cookbooks sold will go to the Kentucky Arts Council. I think God is creating so many wonderful opportunities for the cookbooks and for me!

More about the Games: The World Equestrian Games are comprised of the world championships for eight equestrian sports. The Games are held every four years, two years prior to the Olympic Games, and are governed by the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI).
This is the first time they have been held outside of Europe.

I also have 2 other book signings scheduled the next couple of weeks.
