Missy Barrett Adventure Book Launch on August 30

Book #7 in the Missy Barrett Adventures series is the kind of book every kid loves to have in their collection.   Elyse Bruce, Marc Hightower, and the Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge Airport in Sevierville are co-hosting the book launch for “Barnstormin’” at the Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge Airport in Sevierville on Tuesday, August 30th from 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM.

The book is a little different from the first six books in that this book has photographs, and can be purchased as a black-and-white edition or as a Special Edition with color photographs.

Barnstormin_Cover_Color EditionHere’s what the latest Missy Barrett Adventure is all about.

The love of black-and-white movies, an interest in Amelia Earhart, and a taste for adventure take Missy somewhere she never expected to find herself. After all, it’s not every day you get to fly in a 1927 Waco Straight wing biplane with an expert pilot. With help from her grandfather and Marc Hightower, Missy Barrett becomes a real live, modern day barnstormer!

There are door prizes, and grab bags for the first 50 kids attending the event.  You’ll also get to meet real life pilot Marc Hightower and enjoy a reading from the author of “Barnstormin’.”  There’s even a special Book of Letters welcoming Missy Barrett to the world of aviation with letters from some pretty impressive people.

More Success for “Idiomation: Historically Speaking”

Success is many things to many people.  Maya Angelou said that success was about liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.  Richard Branson says that success is when a person is actively and practically engaged.

Elyse Bruce’s wildly successful blog “Idiomation: Historically Speaking” is a blend of both those philosophies.  To add to that, it’s always wonderful to learn that others find her Idiomation blog worth quoting.

Earlier this week, Federal News Radio 1500 AM linked to one of Idiomation’s entries (just as they did in February), and the team is delighted in Elyse’s continued success with this blog.

Whether it’s Federal News Radio 1500 AM, an author, a blogger, a university student working on a Ph.D. thesis, or someone who’s interested in the history and meaning of phrases and words,  each connection spells success, and we’re pleased to share this news with all of you.
