In the opinion of author Ronda Rich, Southern belles have a lot to teach other women about courtship and flirting. But in her new book, What Southern Women Know About Flirting, Rich's advice doesn't stop at romantic agendas; she also encourages women to use their charm in social and business situations and every moment in between, in order to get 'the best things in life.' The author truly believes that 'charm disarms.' While on tour with her first What Southern Women Know book, the former sportswriter and current 'Dixie Divas' syndicated columnist found uncharacteristic warmth and love in a small Southern town. The people she met there inspired her to write her debut novel, The Town That Came A Courtin'. The author will read from and sign both books. Free admission.
