Remember to visit This Old Book (138 Center Street) Wednesday June 8th for the second week of Authors at the Market at the Grayslake Farmers Market. The author this week is David Ford. Hope to see you there.
Starting Wednesday, June 1, This Old Book will host Authors at the Market during the Grayslake Farmers Market from 3 – 6 pm. A different local author will appear each Wednesday in front of This Old Book at 138 Center Street. I’ll be there June 1 with copies of Edison the Christmas Elf and the Imperfect Perfect Toy (it’s never too early to start shopping for Christmas). I’ll also have free copies of the first chapters of my next book, Vanished!, scheduled for publication late this summer.
Melissa Blue, the illustrator for Edison the Christmas Elf, is opening a fine arts gallery in Grayslake, Illinois, at 148 Center Street. The grand opening will take place on Saturday, April 30, from 2 – 5 pm. Please join her for champagne and cookies
Mark your calendars for July 30 for Authorfest 2016. Meet more than 25 local authors (including me) at the Round Lake Area Community Center from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm. The event will have author readings, music, activities, food vendors, and more. I’ll post updates on my Facebook author page and my website. Janet Elliot, owner of This Old Book in Grayslake, is the co-chair of the event. You can find more information on the festival by visiting Facebook @authorfest.
I’ll be appearing at an author signing and book reading on Saturday, December 12th, from 12 – 3 pm at This Old Book, 138 Center St, Grayslake, Il. The reading of Edison the Christmas Elf will take place at 1:30 pm. Come for the signing and stay for some browsing at this wonderful bookstore.
