Congratulations are in order for Roanoke author Mary Carter Bishop. The paperback edition of Don’t You Ever: My Mother and Her Secret Son, comes out July 30th from Harper Paperbacks. The book will have a new epilogue, and to mark the release, Mary will be speaking at several events around Virginia in the coming months.
So if you loved the book, as a great many did, let your friends across the commonwealth know where they can hear Mary, purchase a copy, and, I’ll just bet, get a copy inscribed.
