ALBANY, GA (WALB) - South Georgia writers learned about their craft from a successful author.

The Albany Civil Rights Institute hosted a forum and book signing with Dr. Eugene Sherman Thursday night.

His latest book is "The Christian Family: A Biblical Perspective."

Sherman also talked about challenges facing self-publishing authors.

"You've got to be aware of the trick of the trade rather than to just sign with a company to publish a book," said Sherman.

He also plans to start a writer's association to provide guidance to help writers navigate the publishing industry.
