Robin Roberts book signing planned by Southeastern Bookstore
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.
