Wednesday, August 12, 6:30-8:00 - the RBC meeting at Recycle Books. The book is From Sleepy Lagoon to the Corner of the Cats, by Steve Sporleder. Steve is ill, so his editor/muse, Parthenia Hicks (poet laureate emerita for Los Gatos), will be stepping in for Steve.
Sunday, August 16, 9:15-12:15 - book signing at Recycle Books (books can be purchased for cash or check). Lost in the Wake is Linda Gunther's 3rd book. She will also bring her 1st 2 - Ten Steps from the Hotel Inglaterre and Endangered Witness. Linda will be out in front of the store (at a table next to mine) during the Campbell Farmers Market.
Friday, August 28, 7:00-? - X, by Sue Grafton. That's right. Sue will be coming to the Bay Area. And she will be at Towne Center Books, in Pleasanton. If you want to see Sue, then you should give the store a call. If you buy a book, you will get a number that tells you where you are in the line for the book signing. Their number is (925) 846-8826.
Monday, October 5, 7:00-? - After You, by JoJo Moyes. Yes, this is the same JoJo Moyes who wrote Me Before You (the prequel to After You). And Me Before You is the same book that I gave a 4/4 back on December 10, 2013. This event is also sponsored by Towne Center Books, but will take place in a 220-seat theater called The Firehouse Art Center. It's located in downtown Pleasanton, near the bookstore. And if you call the store and buy a book, then you can avoid the purchase line on the night of the event.
Lots of great events, yes?
