  1. Treehouse Publishers is sponsoring an author expo in Picayune MS. This is a great opportunity for writers to exhibit and sell their books as well as to get to know other Mississippi and Louisiana authors. Please visit http://msauthorexpo.com for complete details. Dr. June Knight will be live streaming personal interviews with each author.

    We are very excited about this rare opportunity for dynamic exposure of talented Mississippi and Louisiana authors. Thank you for sharing this information to all who may have an interest.
