Fifty Shades of Grey… In Sulphur Springs?

With a line that literally ‘runs around the block’, people clamor to get their copy of the new book “Grey” signed by Author E.L. James Saturday morning.


Waiting inside for the Author


E.L. James signs a copy for a fan going by the name ‘Kristin’. She waited in line for 12 hours to be the first.

The wildly popular author made an appearance at ‘The Bookworm Box” here in Sulphur Springs.

At one point the line outside ran from Gilmer, to Davis, and around to Tomlison.

 Tickets to the event sold out quickly.  If you are thinking of running up to Celebration District for a quick signature, think again.
