Arkansas Curiosities

One of the most interesting facets of my job as communications manager is working with
writers from all over the world.    Some of them are writing special interest
stories and a couple of them are writing books.  Often it can be a publishing company needing photographs for
a textbook or a television station needed video for a project or a news
feature.  Last year shortly after
I took this position, a couple, Janie and Wyatt Jones, contacted me needing
photographs for a book they were working on.  They came in the office a few times and spent hours sorting
through slides and photographs.  We
even worked with them on a few shots we had to track down. 

I was excited to receive an email from Janie a couple of
weeks ago informing me that the book was published.  I was out of town when a copy of the book arrived.  When I returned I discovered that our
communications assistant had been reading it and was sad to hand it over to me.

The book is titled Arkansas Curiosities Quirky characters,
roadside oddities & other offbeat stuff
.  I thought I knew a lot about Arkansas, but I can tell you
that I learn something new every time I open this book.  The stories are short and entertaining
and are organized regionally.

I love discovering new and fun information about The Natural
State.  If you are looking for
