The Sweepers Program: A Book by Gerald Riley

Columbus, Georgia – It was a delightful Sunday afternoon at the Columbus Public Library where Mr. Gerald Riley held a book signing for his publication, The Sweepers Program.

The book is a publication that is entertaining for youth as well as adults. It is an easy read with colorful, unique illustrations from the cover to the back of the book.  It’s about Mr. Riley and The Sweepers Program, which he began at his business-Overflo Beauty and Barber Salon.  The story line is actually based on a young man being hired for his first job; and that is with The Sweepers Program.  Find out what happened to the homeless man in the book!

Next is the name of his lovely wife, Mrs. Catosha Riley, who graciously told him to write the book.
