Yes, I said “doings.”
Anyway, coming up this Saturday we have the amazing Laura Ray – I won’t try to list all her names because it gets a little confusing – with her new book, “Brain Dead and Still Cooking.” Awesome recipes, and an hilarious style make this a great gift! Pair it with her first book, “Brain Dead in the ‘Burbs,” for twice the awesomeness!
Yes, we’ll be open this Sunday, noon to 5:00 p.m. for a special event – and you ALL SHOULD COME! Instead of trying to reinvent the wheel, I’m going to add the press release for this FANTASTIC, ONCE A YEAR EXTRAVAGANZA!
St. Louis Literary Group Rings in the Holidays with an Area-Wide Book Fair
Checking your list? Checking it twice? Books make great gifts, and there’ll be plenty of chances to shop ’til you drop at the St. Louis Literary Consortium’s Second Annual Holiday Book Fair. Set for Sunday, December 8, 2013, from 12 noon to 5 p.m., the Book Fair will feature the work of local writers at five locations around the St. Louis Metropolitan Area.
“We’re always happy when we can partner with independent booksellers to support local authors, and the Holiday Book Fair is a great opportunity for us to do that,” said Winnie Sullivan, who heads PenUltimate Press, a Consortium member organization. The St. Louis Literary Consortium, formed in 2012, is an alliance of literary organizations whose purpose is to promote the literary arts in the Greater St. Louis Metropolitan Area. Its members include Blank Slate Press, the St. Louis Writers Guild, the St. Louis Poetry Center, and Walrus Publishing.
Holiday Book Fair displays will showcase the work of St. Louis writers at the following stores:
- Subterranean Books – 6275 Delmar Boulevard, University City
- All on the Same Page Bookstore – 10052 Olive Boulevard, Creve Coeur
- STLBooks – 100 W. Jefferson Avenue, Kirkwood
- The Book House – 7352 Manchester Road, Maplewood
- Main Street Books – 307 S. Main Street, St. Charles
And writers will be on hand to sign their books at the Creve Coeur, Maplewood, and Kirkwood locations.
So come out and join in the holiday fun. Shop at your neighborhood bookstore, browse at one of the newer bookstores in the area, or visit all five!
