Greenville, SC, Newspaper Reporter & Author Cindy Landrum to Sign Books at Fiction Addiction



Greenville, SC, August 19, 2015 - Greenville, South Carolina, newspaper reporter and author Cindy Landrum will be signing copies of her debut book, Legendary Locals of Greenville (Arcadia, paperback, $21.99), at her book signing at Fiction Addiction on Saturday, September 26th, from 1-3pm. This event is free and open to the public.


Legendary Locals of GreenvilleGreenville has long been a city of visionaries. Richard Pearis settled on the banks of the Reedy River in Cherokee hunting land where few white men would venture. Max Heller, who escaped Nazi-occupied Austria as a teen, triggered the rebirth of downtown. They are some of Greenville's local legends who have seen possibilities, not limitations. They come from all walks of life. Textile leaders such as John T. Woodside, Thomas Parker, and John D. Hollingsworth transformed the city into the "Textile Capital of the World." When textiles began to fade, businessmen and leaders such as Charles Daniel, Tommy Wyche, Tom Barton, Virginia Uldrick, Dick Riley, Carl Sobocinski, and Xanthene Norris helped transform the city once again. Stories of people who have helped shape Greenville with their vision, making it what it is today, fill these pages.
