THIS COPY (shown below) was signed by Winston Groom on the title page in Birmingham at our launch of this edition. Hardbacks of this classic have been out of print for almost two decades until we brought it back in partnership with the publisher and our friends at Page and Palette. It is a new, unread first edition thus, opened only for signing. Published for the Alabama Booksmith in September, 2014 by Doubleday, an imprint of Penguin Random House.


WINSTON GROOM (pictured below from our Wall of Fame) is a homeboy best known for Forrest Gump, which sold almost two million copies, won six Academy Awards and was the biggest grossing  film of all time. In reality, he is a major force in non-fiction writing, and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. Thank you Winston Groom for signing our books and R.I.P.
