Okay, sports fan and book lovers, the day has arrived. Mayor Barbara Spector, and other local town officials, will be cutting the ribbon at Village House of Books at 5:00 this afternoon. This will be followed by guitar-playing from a local musician along with hor's d'oevres and wine. Then at 7:00, local poet, Parthinia Hicks, will be introducing Steve Sporleder, who will read from Hobo Ashes, answer questions, and sign books.
Wait, there's more! Tomorrow night we have 3 local romance authors, Elisabeth Barrett, Jennifer Ryan, and Victoria M. Johnson, who will also read, answer Q's, and sign. Not only that, every woman/girl who attends will receive a rose and chocolates. Come on, how cool is that?
Is that it? Not by a long shot. Friday night we have 2 esteemed authors, Meg Waite Clayton and Tracy Guzeman. They will continue the format from the previous 2 nights. You are going to be very excited to talk to a NY Times bestselling author (Meg) and a debut author who has received a ton of positive reviews. Oh, try to come a little bit early so that you can partake of the proseco and munchies. As long as it's there, you might as well enjoy it.
Wow, that is some week, no? What? There's more, you say? On Saturday, local children's author, Julie Dart, will be reading from her book, Ellie Stands Up to the Bully. And Ellie will be there. Bring your kids. There will be snacks for them (including a juice box - outstanding!).
Okay, now I'm done. Take advantage of this outstanding new independent bookstore. Come to 1 event or all 4. You will love the events and, especially, Cheryl and Steve Hare, the owners. They are bringing a community bookstore to our community.
