The Classic (but "Modern") City

For those interested, I recently heard from the publisher of my latest book--Images of Modern America: ATHENS (image of back and front covers)--and it'll be released September 8th and retail for $22.95. From now until the release date, you can pre-order the book for just $20 including shipping and handling from my online bookstore. Starting September 8th, it'll be available for $22.95 PLUS shipping and handling.

To pre-order, click "Pre-Order Now," where you'll be taken directly to my online bookstore. Upon receiving your order, I'll verify your mailing address with you, and then promptly send you the book when it is available to me. By the way, while at my online bookstore, please feel free to browse around and order any of my six books on UGA football, as well... ; )

Speaking of the Bulldogs, there's a whole chapter dedicated to UGA athletics because as we're all aware, a book on "modern" Athens isn't complete without the Bulldogs. On the whole, Images of Modern America: ATHENS is a pictorial history of the Classic City from 1960 to the present, containing more than 160 brilliant hi-def images, more than 80 percent of which are in full color.

The photo-heavy book, which wound up being one of my most favorite book projects I've worked on, confirmed to me (among other things) that what was once a sleepy, small college town has become truly “the Classic City” in every sense of the name, and I think most readers will find Images of Modern America: ATHENS a true testimony to this.

I will definitely be ordering one of these - I know it will bring back lots of old memories. By the way, I LOVE the cover photo of the bald bulldogs - always makes me wonder if Hugh Hendrix would have shaved his head ?!?!?
