A book release, a book signing

in Uncategorized by

Photographer Janet Garrity has announced that her book “Goin’ Down the River, Fish Camps of the Sea Islands” will be released on September 20. The book, the first ever published about fish camps, includes Garrity’s original photos, history, stories, old photos, and quotes about “goin’ down the river.”
Garrity said, “Fish camps are as familiar to South Carolina as crab pots and plantations. ‘Goin’ down the river to the camp’ is a very old, generational tradition in this part of the world, and this book is a means of preserving that tradition.”
To preview the contents of “Goin’ Down the River,” and purchase reserved copies in advance of the book’s release, visit Garrity’s Web site at www.garrity.com. The book’s retail price is $39.95. “Goin’ Down the River, Fish Camps of the Sea Islands” will be available in stores in late September.
Red Piano Too Art Gallery owner Mary Inabinett Mack recently donned her mental health professional hat and invited a nationally recognized psychologist to do a book signing at the gallery.
Bryan E. Robinson, Ph.D., is author, psychotherapist, Professor Emeritus at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, and a Fellow of the American Institute of Stress. He has authored 30 nonfiction books including “The Art of Confident Living” (HCI Books, 2009), and “Chained to the Desk: A Guidebook for Workaholics, their Partners and Children, and the Clinicians who Treat Them” (New York University Press, 2007). His latest book, “The Smart Guide to Managing Stress,” was released this year. Robinson will be signing his latest book at the gallery on Sunday, September 9 from 1 to 4 p.m.
Talking about his latest book, Robinson says, “stress is on the rise for millions of Americans. We live in a rapidly-changing, turbulent world in which many of us are trying to hold that line between calm and stressful activity.”
“So once you’ve accepted that stress is a fact of life and everyone has it, you’re on the road to managing it. And that’s what this book is all about,” said Robinson.
The book signing is free and open to the public. For more information, call 843-838-2241 or email redpianotoo@islc.net.
