Please join us in welcoming several local writers to the store. They'll be sharing their creative process, books, and be available to sign copies and answer your questions about the publishing world. This is a great opportunity to pick up a signed book and earn bragging rights to say "you knew them when" (anybody remember Dan Brown?) and perhaps gather ideas for how to launch your own book project!
Authors visiting us today cover a wide range of genres:
