George Hill Book Signing

On Thursday, April 12 the library celebrated George Hill's recently published book, "The Season" with a book signing and refreshments of frosted basketball cookies and coffee. George Hill is a patron of the library and a former NCAA Division I basketball coach. His book, "The Season" covers the story of the men on a team from West Virginia State where he coached for a season. Hill captivated his audience as he told about his life, his experience coaching and how he came to write and publish his book. He stressed that the book is not autobiographical but is "about the boys on the team". Another book by Hill, "Investigation" a murder mystery will soon be out, and he is in the process of writing a third book centered on his grandchild who has cerebral palsy. Patrons stayed after the presentation to chat, get their copies of the book signed and enjoy the refreshments. If you would like to read George's book you can check it out at the library or buy your own copy from Barnes & Nobel or
