On May 3 at St. Mary’s Bookstore and Church Supply in Nashville, Tenn., Franciscan Media author Julie Dortch Cragon, whose new book, Visiting Mary: Her U.S. Shrines and Their Graces (Apr. 25), is out just in time for Mother's Day, signed books for some 100 attendees. Almost 200 copies were sold in the store and through pre-sales before the event. Said Cragon (Bless My Child: A Catholic Mother's Prayer Book), “I think for a weekend where there were five First Communions for large schools; a Confirmation; the [Kentucky] Derby; and several volleyball, basketball, soccer, and baseball games for our Catholic schools, the turnout was great." Franciscan Media reports 1,270 sold, "which is good for a niche book from a small Catholic publisher," noted Carole Dahlquist, trade marketing and sales support manager.
