Author Date Change - Mark Your Calendars!

Hi y'all.  I wanted to let you know about a change in our author event schedule.  But it's a good change.    Joshua Safran, author of the memoir Free Spirit:  Growing up on the Road and off the Grid, was supposed to come to VHOB this coming Wednesday, August 13.  That is now off the calendar.  Instead, he will be our VHOB Book Club author for November - the 18th, to be exact.  (Don't worry.  It's the week before Thanksgiving.) Publisher's Weekly compared his memoir to the works of David Sedaris and Augusten Burroughs.  Pretty impressive company, wouldn't you say?

Josh is not only a successful author (Amazon has had 82 ratings - 76-5-star and 6-4-star - that is amazing), he's also a successful documentarian.  His movie, Crime After Crime, a chronicle of a 7-year effort to get a battered woman out of prison, has won 25 awards! Josh can seemingly do it all.
What else?  Well, he's a legal advocate for victims of domestic violence and makes appearances across the country. He is said to be quite the impassioned speaker and storyteller.  And, remember, you don't have to read the book to come see him.  He will be at the store from 7:15 to approximately 8:15.  (The VHOB Book Club will meet 1st, from 6:30-7:15, to discuss the book and get ready for the Q&A.)

Finally, if you want to read his book, we've got 4 copies in the store right now.  And, if we run out, we can get more within 1-2 days.  You're all gonna like this change.

P.S.  Do you want to learn more about Josh and his book and movie?  How about some crazy good testimonials?  You can go to his website -
