Colley Complex, Troy Public Relations and Tourism to host Tonya Terry book signing
Published 3:00 am Tuesday, June 6, 2017
The Colley Senior Complex and Troy Public Relations and Tourism will host a meet and greet book signing for Tonya Terry of WSFA News from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. Wednesday at the senior center. The public is invited.
Terry’s book is titled “Sometimes Lessons Look Like Love.”
“The book is really about love and friendship,” Terry said. “The idea came from a friend of mine, Amanda Granger from Webb. We were broadcast journalism majors at Troy State University. The way Amanda tells it is that, like oil and water, we did not mix.”
Terry said she does not remember their friendship beginning that way but she loves the way her friend tells the story.
As they shared stories of love and life, Granger got a good laugh from the story of when Terry thought she was in love but it turned out to be a lesson.
“Amanda loved the story and said I should write a book and that should be the story – love turning out to be a lesson” Terry said. “I didn’t know if I had the time or the knowledge of the process. But we got it done.”
“Sometimes Lessons Look Like Love” is a personal piece in which Terry shares lessons that she has learned in life, some lessons learned from love, others from solid advice from people she cares about.
“It’s a small book and already I want to do it again,” Terry said. “I’m working to get another book done by my birthday in November.”
Terry will share thoughts from her book and also take time to visit informally with guests at the book signing.
