This Coming Week at VHOB

We've got quite a week ahead of us.  So let's get to it:

Wednesday, August 20 - From 5:30-6:15, national best-selling author, Gregg Hurwitz, will be at VHOB signing his latest book, Don't Look Back.  We'll also have a few of his earlier titles available.

Wednesday, August 20 - From 6:30-7:15, the VHOB Book Club will be discussing Ellen Sussman's latest best seller, A Wedding in Provence.  And at 7:15, till approximately 8:15, Ellen will be there to answer questions and sign books.

 What an outstanding Wednesday we've got lined up, eh?

Friday, August 22 - From 7:00-roughly 8:00, Laurie McAndish King will be at VHOB talking about her new book, Lost Kidnapped Eaten Alive!  True Stories from a Curious Traveler. She will be telling us some very interesting tales from her travels to remote and off-the-beaten-track places.

Saturday, August 23 - From 12 noon-3:00, we have the 1st annual Literary Fair.  Hurray! It's sponsored by the Los Gatos Library, but VHOB has a big part.  We are providing the 2 keynote speakers:  Laurie R. King (not to be confused with Laurie McAndish King from the night before), author extraordinaire, and Jay Elliot, who was an executive VP at Apple for Steve Jobs.  Jay has written 2 books about the Apple way and ileadership.  The event will take place on the big Civic Center lawn on Main Street.  In addition to our 2 authors, the Library will be providing over 2 dozen local authors, some of whom will speak and all of whom will sign books for 3 hours.  (I'm not a big fan of "whom.")  Plus, the Los Gatos Roasting Company will be there selling food and beverages.

Folks, you are NOT going to want to miss this event.  (P.S.  There will also be a number of local publishers, for you aspiring writers/authors.)

How fantastic is next week shaping up, you ask?  Pretty darn fantastic.  I hope to see a bunch of you next week at a bunch of events.

TAKE NOTE:  VHOB #2 will NOT open for business on Monday.  It will be a little later in the week.  I'll let you know the exact new date.
