Newspaper article clipping of Southern Storyteller John P. Faris, Jr.

Jimmy Todd, left, brought his son Jim to meet his former neighbor, John Faris, Jr., at a book-signing held for Faris Friday in Laurens. The signing and reception was hosted by the Laurens County Museum, and large numbers of Faris’ friends came out to see the Laurens native who has written a book, “Ten Was the Deal,” which is described by the publisher as a collection of stories of life growing up hunting and fishing throughout Laurens County. Faris tweaks that description somewhat. “They’re really more coming-of-age stories, most of which occurred on hunting and fishing trips across Laurens County.” The Laurens County Museum on Laurens Street has many more copies of the book available.
