Jackie Simien says “Boujour, Tee Belle”

Jackie Simien of local news anchor fame has written a book. I know her just a tiny bit from Press Club of Southeast Texas and I think she is lovely inside and out, so I’m excited that this Lake Charles, La., native has written her first children’s book, “Boujour, Tee Belle.” It’s a tribute to the culture and Simien’s mother, Annabelle Simien Amos.
She will sign copies from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, at the Port Arthur Public Library, 4615 Ninth Ave. Follow Simien on Facebook on any of three pages under her name.

Here are some more books to indulge in on a cool, fall evening:

 “The Power of Focus”  The Ta-Da Formula stands for Think, Ask, Decide and Act. It’s one of a bunch of little peppy positive success tips from this revised 10th anniversary edition book by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor Hansen and Les Hewitt. It’s designed to help readers hit personal and financial targets with certainty.

“The Power and Grace Between Nasty or Nice” You can be too nice, there is power knowing how to act and life is an experiment, so trying new things is okay. Those are some take aways I got from this book by John C. Friel and Linda D. Olund Friel, who want readers to replace entitlement, narcissism and incivility with knowledge, caring and genuine self esteem.
