Franklin, North Carolina is known for the wide array of precious gems that are mined in the area. I found another kind of gem in Franklin on a recent visit. Books Unlimited is a wonderful independent bookstore in downtown Franklin.
I was thrilled to find five or six copies of my vintage postcard book, The Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, on the shelf! I was asked to autograph the copies. Nice folks!
Support your local independent bookstore, if you are fortunate enough to have one. And when you’re traveling, seek them out and buy a book — either mine or one by another struggling writer!
