First Friday Author Round Up: Diane Martin & Linda Thomas, Margaret & Katherine King, Ohm Law, Kathleen Deal, Carolyn Carter, Lance Moore, Carol Nunnelley & Janie Shores
If light-hearted, humorous school memories put a smile on your face,
you will laugh out loud at the anecdotes collected by two inveterate
local teachers Diane T. Martin and Linda V. Thomas. Few are more
qualified to guide you on a gleeful jaunt into yesteryear. Whether you
are a teacher, student, or parent, Martin and Thomas can conjure up not
only the funny tales we all seem to remember but also the hidden facets
from behind the door of the storied Teachers' Workroom with their first
book—Education: Roast & Toast.
Teachers, by virtue of position, are privy to all sides of the education process, witnessing the gaffes and tribulations equally of students, parents, and administrators. Experience and quick-witted humor make Martin and Thomas’s offering unique and entertaining. With sassy tales of the hilarity and calamity of the classroom setting, their point of view is expertly showcased in this, their first collaboration.
In 1950’s Oxford, Mississippi, identical twin sisters Katherine and

Follow the King twins from first grade to sixth grade and experience the kind of antics that only twins can share. These unique stories will have you laughing with them and at them as they take advantage of looking exactly alike. From the first time that they swapped classes, they never looked back. Join Katherine (the mastermind) and Margaret (the co-conspirator) for a nostalgic trip down memory lane!
