Charlotte Schexnayder has worn many hats in her life: reporter, editor, publisher, columnist, wife, mother and member of the state House of Representatives.
This month, she has added another one: book author. May 1 marked the release of “Salty Old Editor An Adventure in Ink” published by the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies.
On May 20, the Desha County Museum in Dumas hosted a signing party. Terry Hawkins, who took the reins of the Dumas Clarion after it was sold by the Schexnayders, said Charlotte had initially only planned to bring a couple dozen books. He talked her into bringing more than 100 — a good move as it turned out.
The museum was packed.
The Clinton School of Public Service hosted a signing on June 4. Check out Rex Nelson’s take:
And we look forward to seeing Charlotte at our summer meeting, where she will be our keynote speaker.
