Press release submitted by Happy Joe's


Happy Joe Whitty will be at the Book Rack on Elmore Avenue in Davenport December 1st from noon to 2 p.m. doing a book signing for his new book, Not Your Average Joe.

Here is some info on the book:

Joe Whitty has written a book, Not Your Average Joe. The initial run will be in our office sometime Wednesday November 14th. Joe writes about his life and lessons learned that can apply to all of us. It is a fun, quick read where Joe tells the story of a small town farm boy who was always a dreamer, not so good in school, but loved people and had a somewhat naive belief that anything is possible.

The book has been published in honor of Happy Joe's 40th anniversary. Not Your Average Joe is appropriate for ages 10 to adult and will retail for $16.99 plus tax, with a percentage of the proceeds going to the new Happy Joe's Kids Foundation, benefiting children with special needs.

The book can be ordered on the company's web site at www.happyjoes.com. It will also be available in major book stores across the country, as well as on Amazon and other book- related sites.
