Forever Books in St. Joseph, Michigan has a wonderful event where they talk about the new book releases for summer.
And they ask an author to come and do a short reading from their new book.
Over 50 people gathered at Forever Books
The stack of new releases
Robin Allen (owner of the bookstore) and staff Diana, Sherry, and Stephen
Independent bookstores are sites for fantastic literary events like this one. The staff at Forever Books is engaged with literature and with their community.
The staff took turns talking about the new releases they've read
After each of the 20 new releases were discussed, I gave a short reading from my new book
A 1,000-Mile Great Lakes ISLAND Adventure.
And then I signed books, one of the great joys of being an author!
