Book Signing

The Flora Public Library has announced that Barb Tackitt will be at the Flora Public Library tomorrow afternoon, from 2:00-4:00pm for a book signing of her new book, “Movin’ On.”  The book was beautifully illustrated by local artist Denise Plumlee-Tadlock.  Copies of the hardback book, which was published by Mascot Books, will be available for $15.00 each.
“Movin’ On” is a collection of stories that illustrate the idea that the most important things in life are not what we teach, but what we learn. Working nearly three decades as a traveling, country nurse, Barb encountered more than a few surprises along the way. The book is about her 30-year journey at the health department and it showcases 32 unique patient experiences.  Each story is an account of a true event that changed her life and helped shape who she is as a wife, mother, and person. Some are funny, some are poignant, but all are entertaining and enlightening.   
Proceeds from the book are going to help Barb’s niece, Angie Tackitt Conrad, and her two sons who both have autism.  
Anyone that misses the book signing may purchase “Movin’ On” from Mascot Books at
