FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Senator Tim Scott and Representative Trey Gowdy to Sign New Book at Fiction Addiction
Tickets to enter the signing line are free, but only available with a purchase of Unified from Fiction Addiction. All books to be signed must be purchased from Fiction Addiction; no outside books please. Pre-orders are highly recommended to guarantee availability.
We will open our doors for book pickup the morning of the signing at 9:30am. The signing line will then form outside the store, down our sidewalk, on a first-come, first-served basis prior to the event. We encourage everyone wanting a book signed to be in line by 11am, as the authors are on a tight schedule and will depart as soon as the line dies down.
To keep the line moving, you may take action photo shots while the authors are signing the books, but not posed/staged photos. Fiction Addiction may not have any staff available to help with photos, so make friends with those in line behind you.
The authors will only sign copies of Unified, no photos or other memorabilia. In order to accomodate as many attendees as possibly on their tight schedule, the authors do not plan to personalize. The authors will sign as many copies of Unified as you wish to purchase.
If you cannot attend the event, we will try our best to get you a signed book, but we cannot guarantee it. If you pre-order and tell us that you are not attending the event, we will not charge your card until we have a signed copy in hand for you.
In a divided country desperate for unity, two sons of South Carolina, show how different races, life experiences, and pathways can lead to a deep friendship -- even in a state that was rocked to its core by the 2015 Charleston church shooting.
Tim Scott, an African-American US senator, and Trey Gowdy, a white US congressman, won't allow racial lines to divide them. They work together, eat meals together, campaign together, and make decisions together. Yet in the fall of 2010 -- as two brand-new members of the US House of Representatives -- they did not even know each other. Their story as politicians and friends began the moment they met and is a model for others seeking true reconciliation.
In Unified, Senator Scott and Congressman Gowdy, through honesty and vulnerability, inspire others to evaluate their own stories, clean the slate, and extend a hand of friendship that can change your churchs, communities, and the world.
