Just had lunch in Rocky Mount with my old pal, the noted author Keith Ferrell (most recently, a NYTimes bestseller) and afterwards, I took him over to the downtown library and shot some portraits of him doing what he loves.
Keith is an old-style book worm and a member of the library board in Franklin County, a position in which he takes great pride.
“We have an outstanding library system,” he says with absolutely no hesitation and from what I’ve seen, he’s not overselling it at all. It is an active library that works especially hard for kids who have few options.
Here are Keith and me with some of the portraits.
