Ever Attend a Book Signing?

With the economy plummeting and the cost of gas rising more and more people are looking for cheap fun. If you are a reader why not come meet your favorite authors? The events are cool, air-conditioned and FREE! Author events are a great date night.
If you've never been to a signing I urge you to give it a try. We move the shelves and set up chairs. The authors talk, answer question and you can bring your camera.
It's fun!
