Meteorologist James Spann Coming to Tuscaloosa For Book Signing Saturday
Alabama weatherman James Spann will be at Just Love Coffee cafe in downtown Tuscaloosa this Saturday for a book signing.
Spann is the author of three books -- Weathering Life, All You Can Do Is Pray and Benny and Chipper: Prepared... Not Scared.
In an interview with the Thread about the event, Spann said he enjoys these events because he gets to talk with people and hear their stories.
"Everyone has a story," he said, "Sometimes people just need to tell their stories, and I love to hear every single one."
Spann, the state's most ubiquitous forecaster, is the chief meteorologist for Birmingham's ABC 33/40 and for Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa.
Spann said the people of Tuscaloosa are special to him, as he moved to the city in the fifth grade with his mother.
"Tuscaloosa is a special place to me," he said, "we were broke and hurting and they made us feel welcome."
The book signing is this Saturday, September 17th, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Just Love Coffee in downtown Tuscaloosa at 2531 University Boulevard Suite 100.
