The Florence Festival of Books, which opens at 10 a.m. on Saturday, September 27, has added a special event on Friday, September 26. Best-selling author Teresa Rhyne will appear in the theater at 7 p.m. Teresa will have a meet and greet and book signing open to the public at 6 p.m. in the lobby. Tickets for the event are $5 in advance and $7 at the door. Proceeds from the ticket sales will be divided between the Florence Area Humane Society and Florence Relay for Life.
Teresa describes herself as a lawyer, writer, dog lover and breast cancer survivor (though definitely not in that order). She loves wine, books, coffee and dogs (still not in order) and loathes exercise, Christmas, and chocolate (probably in that order).
Teresa travels internationally for keynote speeches and other presentations wherever an inspirational, humorous, cancer-surviving, dog-loving, pessimist-turned-reluctant-optimist, motivational speaker may be needed.
