Please join us for a reading and signing with Pam Stone. The event is free and open to the public.
If you’ve ever considered leaving the rat-race of a big city to embrace small town living, actress (“Coach”) and comedian, Pam Stone, has selected readers’ favorites from her syndicated column, “I’m Just Saying” to prep you for the journey. From laugh out loud to moments of poignancy, Stone weaves her essays in a style described as a cross between James Herriot and Garrison Keillor. So, if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to spend the night in a small town ER, select a jury pool from a group of citizens that all know each other or try to sell a blow-up doll at a yard sale, let ‘American Comedy Award’ winner, Pam Stone, introduce you to a part of the world you just might not want to leave…
Actress, comedian, and radio-host, Pam Stone is best known for her 7 seasons on the hit ABC sit-com, 'Coach,' portraying Coach Judy Watkins. As a comedian, she won The American Comedy Award for 'Best Female Stand-up,' and made dozens of television appearances on such shows as "The Tonight Show," "Oprah," "50 Years of Funny Females" "Comic Strip Live," "Joan Rivers" along with 3 'Showtime' Cable Specials.
Following a self-imposed vow not to turn 40 in Hollywood, Stone followed her heart and her horses and moved south to a town of 2,000 in Upstate South Carolina where she was offered her own radio show ("The Pam Stone Show,") on 107.9FM, Charlotte, on the condition that she be allowed to broadcast from a shack behind her barn on her farm, picking up two national "Gracie Awards" for "Best Comedy Entertainment Program" along the way. "I'd do a segment, then run outside during the breaks and clean a stall or throw some hay to the horses." she explains. "Once, a bear came out of the woods behind the shack, the dogs went nuts and listeners heard nothing but their hysterical barking and my terrified shrieks as I shoved furniture against the door for about ten minutes."
Now writing a syndicated column, "I'm Just Saying," Stone has selected her readers' favorites and compiled them into her first book, "I Love Me A Turkey Butt Samwich."
"It wasn't too hard to choose which columns people liked," Stone smiles. "They made it plain to me through email or stopping me at the feed store or the gas station. And each column is either true or based on a true story. That's what's so wonderful about living here~ you don't have to make up material, it just happens~ whether it be trying to sell a blow-up doll at a yard sale or being told you don't know what you're missing if you haven't tried a turkey butt sandwich."
