Book signing set

A book signing is planned for Saturday from 2-4 p.m. in the foyer of Oakland Baptist Church in Corinth.
The book, written for his family, traces the preacher’s life from his birth in rural West Tennessee to the miracles God performed during his ministries in Tennessee and Mississippi. It was written to prove that God can use anyone who is willing to surrender to His will.
Walker and his wife of over 55 years, the former Louise Mitchell of Union City, retired and moved to Corinth in 1997.
Their family includes their son and daughter-in-law, Jay and Teresa Walker of McMinnville; two daughters and sons-in-law, Carol and Jim Pinkston of Corinth and Vicki and John Clark of Olive Branch, Miss.; five grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.
Anyone seeking more information about the book may contact the Walkers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
