“Chicken Soup for the Soul” writers team up for book signing in Joplin

Award winning authors of the “Chicken Soup for the Soul” series stopped by a Joplin bookstore to meet fans on Saturday, Nov. 11.

Billy Holladay Skelley and Margarite Ruth Wilson-Stever teamed up, autographing the books that bare their names.

Both contributed essays and stories to several magazines, journals and anthologies.

The focus of their writings center on stories of inspiration and comfort.

For the authors, book signings are just as much a treat for them as they are for fans.

“Writing is a solitary activity, so when I’m able to meet my readers, it just makes me feel like I’m meeting old friends,” said Stever.

“Always Buying Books” made sure it had plenty of copies on hand for readers.
