Generations Gallery in the Historic Village at Indian Springs is hosting a reception for an exciting new author, Rita Lewis, who just happens to be a Prosecuting Attorney for the State of Georgia in rural Butts County on October 31st from 1:00-3:00 PM.
Rita first ventured to read her collection of "true strories from the courtroom" to the open mike audience at the Writers Conference held every year at the Gallery. The crowd roared with laughter at her dry humor. "Actually, we think she was a little surprised by the response. She had been encouraged by her colleagues to put all of these tales into a book, but when the reception for her manuscript was so rousing, she decided to publish," explains her publisher, Kathy Socha.
Ready now for her first booksigning, the unassuming attorney expects a positive reaction to the true life accounts from her community. " Sometimes you just have to laugh....and it's all
documented; it's all part of the public record," she explains. "Anyone who enjoys Southern Humor will enjoy this peak into the Courtroom."
Generations Gallery is a creative writing and arts center in Middle Georgia. Something new in the Historic Heartland, this Gallery is interested in helping emerging artsists and writers "make their own history." In conjunction with free workshops for writers every Saturday afternoon, the Gallery has helped their writers group publish seven new books this year. Andi Kulp, a principal in Phase One Design Services, an Atlanta firm, started the concept with four friends on a client's invitation to help her build traffic to this unique tourist destination at the entrance to Indian Springs State Park. This is the nation's oldest state park, built by the CCC during the Depression. The natural mineral spring was considered a sacred healing site by the Indians for centuries before the settlers came to Georgia.
