If you haven’t yet purchased your copy of “Champions for Change: How the Mississippi State Bulldogs and Their Bold Coach Defied Segregation,” here are four good opportunities next week in Mississippi:
Monday, Dec. 10: At the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame and Museum, I’ll join former MSU players Bailey Howell, Doug Hutton and Larry Lee for a discussion of the 1963 MSU-Loyola game and the era that preceded it. The discussion, which will be led by Rick Cleveland, will begin at 6:30. I’ll be there at 5 signing and selling, and I’ll hang around afterward, too, if you can’t make it before the discussion. (1152 Lakeland Drive, Map)
Thursday, Dec. 13: TurnRow Book Company, Greenwood, 5:30 p.m. (304 Howard Street, Map)
Friday, Dec. 14: Campus Book Mart, Starkville, 3-5 p.m. (318 East Lee Boulevard, Map)
Saturday, Dec. 15: Lemuria Books, Jackson, 3 p.m. (4465 I-55 North #202, Map)
Hope to see you at one of these events. If you can’t make it, of course, there’s always online ordering, where I’ll sign every copy.
