Fall 2011 Book Tour: Pig Pickin' in Cedar Grove, NC

My friend Keri and the community of Cedar Grove, NC, home to one of the Cake Ladies from the book, Betty Compton, have put together the following event down east in Cedar Grove, NC to celebrate Cake Ladies.  This people of this community garden have been a friend to me and to the Bountiful Cities Project here in Asheville, and I feel so deeply honored to be in such fine company.  I feel so grateful, too, that the community put this together on their own, to celebrate this wonderful woman Betty who has given so much to their community.  I'm getting a little teary again.
