BAIPA member Mara Lynn Johnstone shares about local authors event
If you’re within driving distance of Santa Rosa on Sunday July 10th, or Tuesday the 12th, come join a number of local authors at two different free events!
The first is Author Launch, put on by the Redwood Writers, celebrating local books published in the last year. There will be 20 authors there to present enticing snippets of their work, and many other bookish people to mingle with. Also snacks. And did I mention that it’s free? Invite anyone who might be interested—books make great gifts!
The second event is Hot Summer Nights, hosted by Copperfield’s Books: every Tuesday in July there will be authors reading passages from their books at the Copperfield’s in Montgomery Village. (Tuesday the 12th is the day when I will be reading.) Interested in hearing some fascinating bits of writing? Fond of supporting local bookstores? Then come help local writers fill seats at what’s sure to be a good time. Bring a friend, and an appetite for literature! (Who can spend time in a bookstore and not feel tempted to buy something?)
There are details and maps to both locations on their Facebook event pages. (Perfect for sharing; more “writerly” content for your Facebook presence, and a good way to interact with other local writers!)
Copperfield’s Hot Summer Nights:
Hope to see you there!
