[November 19, 2014]  ATLANTA - Co-authors Joe Sonderman and Cheryl Eichar Jett will be on hand for a slide show presentation and stories about America’s Mother Road from its Chicago roots to the Mississippi River, including our own Atlanta. Sonderman and Jett are experienced authors and historians who have 19 books to their credit, many on Route 66.

They collected thousands of photographs along the way, selecting about 200 of their favorites for their newest book about the Mother Road.   (Click here to continue reading)
