Soap stars Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes bring their new book to local Bar

I recall quite vividly my best friend’s basement.  In the early 90s, the idea of a “big screen T.V.” meant doing a stress test to ensure a soundly structured floor – you know what I’m talking about.  Those leviathans of the living room, what happen to be termed “rear projection televisions”, built like an armored door and weighing, like, 500 lbs.  My best friend’s family were the proud owners of such technology, and their basement held the keys to the kingdom. 

In those glory days, summer afternoons were punctuated with boloney sandwiches and – thanks to my bestie’s Mama – Days of Our Lives.  We heaped couch cushions on the floor and sat way too close, watching those incredible adults with big hair feel things on that giant T.V. – including a certain Mr. and Mrs. Hayes.

I may no longer be counting the sands in the hourglass, and my time with that plastic tower of television is long, long gone.  No more 90s afternoons (although 90s primetime is another story – The X-Files is totally on Netflix!  Party on, Wayne!).  But a cool kid like me need not rely on nostalgia alone: so, hey, did you know “Julie” and “Doug” write books?  Sweet!

Join Bill Hayes and Susan Seaforth Hayes at The Summit area Barnes & Noble as they present their new book together tonight, Monday, October 1st.  Starting at 6:30pm, the pair will make an appearance to pen signatures in celebration of Trumpet, a historical novel telling the tale of a young, aspiring actress navigating the high-stakes world of the stage in the Regency era.  The Hayes, also the authors of the best-selling autobiography Like Sands Through the Hourglass, have spent more than forty years together as co-stars, friends and, now, writers.       

So.  Whatever your feelings on historical fiction, I know there’s a 90s kid you somewhere (or if not, I’m sure it wouldn’t be too hard to find one.  Especially in the Highlands).  Grab your Trapper Keeper and let’s saddle up!  Those television superstars of good summers past will be ready and waiting with a fresh book and a winning smile (and it would just be super awesome if maybe a boloney sandwich as well). 

The Summit Barnes & Noble is located at 4100 Summit Plaza Drive.  For more information, call (502) 327-0410.

About Erin Day
I currently spend most of my days sequestered in a dark and secret room projecting IMAX films for an adoring public. In my spare time I read books (a lot) and contemplate ever more devious ways to become a professional Blacksmith. I love words, paper, fashion, trees, Charlie Chaplin, useless knick-knacks and my beloved turquoise 1994 Ford Ranger - Daniel. I totally believe in the Loch Ness Monster. Books are culture; my goal is to tell you a story.
