‘Chicken Soup’ writer coming to Clinton on Friday

“Chicken Soup for the Soul” contributing writer William Clark will be on hand at the Johnson & Co. General Store in Clinton on Friday (Oct. 14) to sign his new novel, “Smoky Mountain Rising – The Day That Changed Everything.”

He will be in the store, at 139 N. Main St., from 3:30-5 p.m., and also will sign copies of the newest book in the “Chicken Soup” series, called “Miracles and the Unexplainable.”

In addition, he will have copies of his other four inspirational books and the Chicken Soup book “The Magic of Cats,” for signing.

His true story in “Miracles and the Unexplainable” is about Norman, a World War II veteran who fought in the Battle of the Bulge, Clark said.

Clark was Norman’s pastor and friend, he said.

“Only God knows why I had a special, spiritual connection with Norman,” he said

“During the book signing, all of the books are lower than retail and discounted again for more than one,” Clark said.

A former resident of Knoxville, Clark now lives in Jefferson City and is a board member of Jefferson County’s CARE Animal Shelter.
