A couple of weeks ago I put up a post about the beauty of the Athenaeum and how a group was looking to get it restored. Today, Adam Southern and I will tell you more about that group, some exciting developments and show you some of the damage to this historic treasure. Continue reading

This week, I want to show you some photos from a very disturbing house Jonathan Hickerson had asked me to visit. When he told me what was inside I was intrigued, when I discovered what was there, I decided I had to show you…
Friends, Colleagues, Peers,
I’m very happy to introduce you to the latest show by the Producers of Maury County Now (Ross Jaynes, Adam Southern) promoting literacy, authors, and their works and words. (Click below to see the show!)
Here’s Adam Southern’s thoughts about Page By Page:
“Page By Page is a show I’ve dreamed about doing for awhile. For years, I’ve been a fan of John Seigenthaler’s A Word on Words. While I’m not a forty-year television veteran like Seigenthaler, I did get to meet and interview several authors on my weekly radio show, Southern State of Mind, during its tenure. Now, it’s time to take the show to television. I’m thrilled that the Maury County Library and the production team of Maury County Now could partner to make this new show a reality.
I think the show will be equally educational and entertaining. Along the lines of education and entertainment, the show’s first guest was Jeff High. Jeff is a brilliant man—a man that really knows literature. He has a degree in English and another in Nursing, and he is also a very funny guy. His brilliance and humor really show when you read his debut novel, More Things in Heaven and Earth. You’ll see when you watch the show, too!
Jeff is the first of many authors what will be interviewed on Page By Page. My most sincere hope is that the show will get the public interested in books and reading. The more a community reads, the better the community will be.”
This is the 3rd show currently Executive Produced by myself and the first by Adam. We really are pushing for not only increased awareness of the Maury County Public Library but literacy in general. I’m really hoping this show can draw in all kinds of high level literary talent, bringing people and awareness to Maury County. We have so much untapped potential and I really feel like we can highlight the great talent in and around our county as well as bring in some heavy hitters!

Gardens of Maury County is on sale at Wall Candy and The Old Curiosity Book Shop!
I had the pleasure of being asked to go in before the crowd and shoot the tables and decoration for the Maury Alliance Annual Meeting which took place at the Memorial Building in Columbia, TN on Jan 28th, 2014. Let’s go on a journey and see some of the sights from before the event!
History is important. Moreover, realizing the significance of historical places and preserving them is key to not only our economic survival but for good or ill, our distinct cultural heritage. The Athenaeum Rectory needs your help. This post isn’t about showing you the cracking plaster, the windows that need to be resealed, the walls that need to be re-painted; it’s about showing you the beauty and the significance of this treasure we have right here in Columbia, Tennessee.
I’m not a fan of surprises, because surprises generally end badly. I can honestly say, I am both humbled and excited by the surprise reaction of those who have not only expressed interest but outright joy at the idea of Maury Tonight.
As alluded to last week, I have a couple of big announcements! First up, in the next couple of weeks I’ll be releasing my first book entitled ‘Gardens of Maury County’. Continue reading
