Communication arts teacher holds book signing
By RAYCEE THOMPSON

The first Joplin signing for eighth grade communication arts teacher Mr. Randy Turner's book, The Turner Report, was held Saturday at Always Buying Books.
The signing was mainly for The Turner Report, but Mr. Turner's earlier books, Small Town News and Devil's Messenger, were also on sale.
Mr. Turner was 14 when he wrote his first book, but it was never published. He said it wasn't his best work. While he was a reporter he never really had time to write a book, he said. Once he started teaching in Diamond, Missouri his students inspired him to take a shot at writing a book again.
