Jeff Hampton Book Signing scheduled Sept. 14

TYLER, September 3, 2013—A Book Signing Event, featuring author Jeff Hampton, will take place on September 14, from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., at the East Texas Book Fest, in the Tyler Rose Center, 420 Rose Park Drive.

Hampton, a resident of Garland, will be available to sign copies of his new book Grandpa Jack.

Few people among the hundreds of millions that have populated the United States have stood where Jack Dodger stood on that November night. The odds of anyone getting to that place in time were extremely high—even more so for a man like Jack Dodger.

After a lifetime of struggles, Jack Dodger wants nothing more than to spend his retirement playing cards with old friends at the barbershop in East Dallas. But everything changes on New Year's Eve when a burglar bursts through the door and takes Jack into the night at gunpoint. Jack returns safely home the next morning but with a secret and a story that will propel him into the spotlight and onto the biggest stage in America: the race for President of the United States.

Will Grandpa Jack win the election? And will he survive the process? What will he learn about himself and his country along the way? Join Grandpa Jack on a journey that takes him from coast to coast and from the depth of disillusionment to the pinnacle of pride.
