Meet the Author:

Bambie Lynn

Saturday, June 22, 11:30

Saturday, June 22 at 11:30, join us at the Old Jail Art Center for refreshments and a glimpse into the soulful existence of award-winning author, Bambi Lynn, as she presents her two memoirs recounting a traumatic life wrought with abuse and turbulence, but also, the stamina to weather the storm.


Her story begins with The Journey of Josephine, which dives into the darkest hours of Bambi’s life, and how a humble ragdoll named Josephine became her security blanket and absorbed her countless tears. Bambi’s story continues in The Treasures of My Heart, as a recounting of her journey to find healing and purpose. Throughout the storm, Bambi recognized the “winks” and “whispers” of God, telling her of his eternal love and that she would make it through.


Ms. Lynn currently enjoys being a mother of six adults and grandmother of 13 grandchildren.  She posts weekly blogs on her website,, and has appeared on numerous podcasts.  Her passion is listening to the stories of other survivors and speaking encouragement from her own ability to survive.  Bambi is currently penning her third book.


Visit The Painted Palette Gift Shop at the Old Jail Art Center for unique and artsy gifts.

Monday – Saturday, 11 – 3



THE KIT JONES historical vessel is back home and next to the Old Jail Art Center, completing its long journey from deteriorating in a Biloxi shipyard! Look for a permanent exhibit to be housed upstairs in the Old Jail, overlooking the Kit.  To help fund this exciting undertaking (which is already proving to be a great draw to Darien and the Old Jail Art Center), FRIENDS OF THE KIT JONES (a non-profit) is selling personalized bricks to pave the area surrounding her. Visit to find out how you can be immortalized while helping preserve a part of McIntosh history.  Commemorative 11×17 posters and postcards are also available to benefit the Kit Jones and MAA.
