I want to give you a reason to support Village House of Books (aside from the fact that we want ALL bookstores to succeed): Starting tomorrow, October 16, and running through Saturday, the 18th, VHOB will donate 10% FROM ALL SALES to Breast Cancer Research. I don't know how much more you can ask from a local bookstore. Please pop in to either of their Los Gatos locations - 326 Village Lane and 21 W. Main Street, from 10-6 all 3 days - and buy some books. You will not only be supporting your local bookstore, but you will also be aiding in the ongoing battle to cure breast cancer. There is no nobler cause.
And while I have you in blog-reading mode, here are the events at VHOB for the rest of the month:
Saturday, October 25, 10:00-12:00 - Hello Kitty Reading Day, celebrating the 40th anniversary of HK
Saturday, October 25, 3:30-5:00 - meet and greet with Jenny Hurwick, author of The Adventures of Frazzle and Twitch
Saturday, October 25, 5:00-6:00 - meet and greet with Christine Z. Mason, author of Boudaries: A Love Story (I just reviewed that on my blog - booksage.blogspot.com - and really liked it) and G. Elizabeth Kretchmer, author of The Damnable Legacy of a Minister's Wife. You'll also get wine (and water for you teetotalers) and hor's d'oevres. Very cool.
Sunday, October 27, 2:30-4:30 - a Halloween celebration with Jeff Baham, author of The Unauthorized Story of Walt Disney's Haunted Mansion, a behind-the-scenes look at the amusement park ride. Come in costume.
Saturday, November 8, 4:00-6:00 - meet and greet with Carole Bumpus, author of A Cup of Redemption. (Yes, I know I said October events - so, sue me!)
Lots of fun stuff coming up.
