Atlanta Daily World Opens Store in Airport

atlanta-daily-worldThis week I attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new Atlanta Daily World book store at the Atlanta Airport. I was the guest of my friend Cecelia Hunter who is a partner in  Airport Retail Management (ARM), a  firm that manages several concessions at the airport.  The Atlanta Daily World is the oldest daily newspaper in the United States having been founded in 1928 by W.A. Scott. It is further distinguished by having been the first black newspaper to have correspondents cover the U.S. Congress and the White House in the 1940’s.

The ceremonies included two authors who were signing their new books. One was Linda Kenney Miller who was signing Beacon on the Hill, and the other was my friend and Fulton County Superior Court Judge Marvin Arrington signing his book Making My Mark. I was delighted to find both books in the goody bag the guests received. It was a truly wonderful and historic occasion, and I was grateful to be a part of it.

Did you think I would end this post without a quilt? Of course not, Cecelia has a quilt I made for her called Ribbons Of Friendship. It was actually commissioned for Cecelia by our mutual friend Ingrid Jones.
