Shannon Kaprive & Mike Thomas Book Signing



Story and photography by Joyce Taylor

Jane Jones and Mary Ann Richardson, owners of Peddler Interiors, welcomed guests for a book signing with former Murfreesboro resident Shannon Kaprive and current resident Mike Thomas. Shannon’s book, Something So Real, uses poems, scriptures, and life lessons richly illustrated with scenic watercolors, these messages instilling confidence in mind, body and soul. Mike’s book, The Secret of the Hidden Scrolls, the first in a series. When Mike’s son Peter was nine years old, Mike searched for books that would teach Peter about the Bible in a fun, imaginative way. Finding none, he decided to write his own series, geared for ages 6-11.

It’s always a joy to enter the Peddler. There’s no more beautiful shop anywhere, filled with fine art, gifts, and everything imaginable for Jerome Farris to use, beautifully decorating homes in our area.
