Press Release: Southwest Georgia Technical College

On Thursday, October 24th, Thomasville native and author Debbie Griffiths is returning to her nursing alma matter, Southwest Georgia Technical College (SWGTC), for the signing and pre-release of the second edition of her popular book Little Lady, BIG DREAM.

“What better place to share the good news . . . in my hometown where I was born AND at the College where my dreams began to unfold . . . I'm teary-eyed just thinking about my great experience at ‘Thomas Tech’ over 38 years ago!” commented Griffiths.

This book signing at SWGTC is unique because it was the location of her book signing upon its original release back in 2007, and because it will give our community the first glimpse at the book before its public release.

“The official release date is November 5, but the publisher was gracious to send me the first 200 copies to sign and personalize for my friends,” added Griffiths. Griffiths will have copies of the new edition of her book at the event that can be purchased for $18.00.

“We are so excited to welcome Debbie back to Thomasville and to help her celebrate the release of the second edition of Little Lady, BIG DREAM. Debbie is not only an alumnus of SWGTC, but she is also a supporter.

Over the years, Debbie has helped many of our nursing students by funding a scholarship in her name. We are grateful for the continued support of our nursing programs and of our students,” commented Amy Maison, Executive Director of Marketing, Public Relations, and Institutional Advancement.

Griffiths, who has received much notoriety on a national level as an author and locally as the founder and developer of Southern Pines, will now add executive producer to her repertoire for the movie based on her book Little Lady, BIG DREAM set to release in 2015. At the book signing event she will also announce the title of the movie to the attendees.

“I am excited that at this event I will also have the opportunity to share the new movie title for the first time with my hometown community,” added Griffiths.

This free event is open to the public and will be held on SWGTC’s Thomasville Campus in the B Building Lecture Hall from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 24th.
