Robin Roberts book signing planned by Southeastern Bookstore
Tuesday, May 13, 2014 by: Tonya Lowentritt HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University Alumna Robin Roberts, the co-host of ABC's morning
show "Good Morning America," will sign her new novel, "Everybody's Got Something,"
Saturday, May 17. Hosted by the Southeastern Bookstore, the book signing is scheduled from 1 to
2 p.m. on the first floor of Southeastern's new Student Union. A Mississippi native and a graduate of Southeastern, Roberts wrote the novel
in partnership with Veronica Chambers. "In Mississippi, where I'm from, there's an understanding that hard times do
not discriminate," Roberts said. "My mother used to say, 'Everybody's got something.'
This is the story of my something and my road to something better. And my hope is
that you will find your better too." "Everybody's Got Something," published by Grand Central Publishing, is described
as an inspirational memoir in which Roberts recounts the incredible journey that has
been her life so far and the lessons she has learned along the way. The book is on sale now at the Southeastern Bookstore and will also be available
at the book signing location on Saturday in the Student Union. Parking is available
along SGA Drive and in the parking lots adjacent to Texas Drive. For additional information about the book signing, contact the Southeastern Bookstore
