Local Author Day

Saturday, July 21 | Local Author Day features the following authors and their works:

12:30-1:30 | Sue Bristol and Jeanie Jacobson will sign Chicken Soup for the Soul: My Amazing Mom: 101 Stories of Love and Appreciation ($14.95). This new collection is filled with heartwarming and entertaining anecdotes by grateful children, all in praise of the amazing woman who encourages them, supports them, and most importantly, loves them. Mom will laugh, cry and nod in recognition as she reads these heartwarming stories. Sue Bristol wrote “Heavenly Connections”, and Jeannie Jacobson wrote “At First Sight”. 

1:00-2:00 | Tom Baker will sign That’s Close Enough: A Tribute to the Quick Wit, Sharp Humor and Generous Generosity of Joe Henry Baker ($30.00). Tom Baker illustrates his father’s many accomplishments as a husband, father, son, businessman, entrepreneur, and creative mastermind. It is his tribute to his father who was a great and giving man who never sought the spotlight but relished every opportunity to enrich the lives of those around him with wit, humor, generosity, loyalty, and humility. It will give you a renewed appreciation for your own family and will encourage you to thank the many people in your own live who mean so much to you.

1:30-2:30 | Kurt Luchs will sign It's Funny Until Someone Loses an Eye (Then It's Really Funny) ($25.00). This collection of stories by Kurt Luchs pursues its comedic quarry with the ruthlessness of a pussycat trying to get out of a cardboard box. Luchs is an inspired comic writer for whom not only the world but language itself is a source of constant delight. 

2:00-3:00 | Pierce Koslosky will sign The Beach Week ($11.95). Pierce Koslosky Jr. has crafted fourteen poignant short stories that paint a vivid portrait of the South Carolina coast’s diverse, temporary inhabitants; those people attracted to a landscape both beautiful and overwhelming in its ability to force introspection and change. Set over the course of a single rental season, the book's unrelated characters are united by a cohesive theme; yet each story has a distinct message at its core. 

2:30-3:30 | Jon Minks will sign Crimes in our Wake ($15.99). Four thousand people at sea with a killer – What would you do? Honeymoon couple, Fiona and Joseph Fitzgerald, cruise to Hawaii and risk their lives confronting a killer.  The deadly spree begins in California and continues on the high seas.  The ship’s officers need help finding the killer before the next victim is attacked.  

3:00-4:00 | Cynthia Coleman and Mark Fegan of the Alternative Book Club will sign Spotlight on the Art of Fear ($19.99).  How does fear work through our personal, social, and professional lives? What are the effective ways to handle fear? Properly understood, fear can become a tremendous driver of personal growth and success. The powerful stories in this book will enable you to build a healthy relationship with fear.

3:30-4:30 | Lisa Neu will sign The Fingers of God (paperback $19.95, hardcover $35.95). The poems in this book reflect a life-time of writing Christian Poetry to inspire, teach, and lead others to the grace and mercy of our Heavenly Father, and to share that God's love does reach down and touch the lives of each one of us in our journey here on earth....with all the good, bad, happy, uplifting, depressing, and sometimes lonely situations we each experience in our walk through life.
