Celebrate Inkwood Books’ first birthday since Stefani Beddingfield bought the store. The "Sale-a-Bration" at 7 p.m. features renowned local writer Ben Montgomery
— the award-winning,
Pulizer nominee and Tampa Bay Times reporter who helped bring to life the crimes at North Florida’s Dozier School for Boys — will be there to sign copies of his new book, Grandma Gatewood’s Walk.
The inspirational story follows the life and times of the first woman to walk the entire Appalachian Trail — and the first person ever to walk it two and then three times. Emma Gatewood’s initial journey of 146 days — equipped with a change of clothes and less than $200 — propelled her to national fame as “Grandma Gatewood” and inspired countless others to follow her tenacious path. Inkwood Books, 216 S. Armenia Ave., Tampa. inkwoodbooks.com.
If you miss Ben tonight, see him in Ybor Saturday night at the CL Space. The event will will include food and drinks, live music from Genghis Flan and high-fives. Sat., April 5, 7 p.m., 1911 N 13th St Suite W200, Tampa.
