VHOB has a new policy going into effect immediately. It will be especially valuable to local book clubs but can work for any organization/group. You can actually get your own space in the store to use for your next meeting. Here are the details:
1. It is available from 6:30-8:30 or 7:00-9:00 any night from Tuesday-Friday (unless we have an author event scheduled - go to the website - villagehouseofbooks.com - to check that out).
2. You can bring food and beverages in, just like we currently do for the VHOB Book Club.
3. There is a capacity of 25 people.
4. You can pay a fee of $75 or buy $75 worth of books.
For the price of a few books, you can meet in one of the coolest (and certainly most quiet) after-hours places in town. Feel free to call the store to make a reservation.
We have added 2 more authors (and 1 cover illustrator) to the list that I blogged yesterday for California bookstore Day. They are Amalia Hillmann (cover illustrator with Alina Sayre), Steve Sporleder, from 10-1, and Mary Ann Quinn, from 1-3. I will keep you posted if there are more add-ons.
Finally, Alina Sayre, author of The Illuminator's Gift, a middle school fantasy novel, conducted an interview yesterday with Cheryl and Steve and took pictures of the store for her blog. Here is a link to the article. She did a totally terrific job.
