If you're in or around Pitt Meadows this Tuesday, November 19th swing by Bean Around Books for a full day of exciting author readings. Join Karen Garry, Rev. Stephen Garrett, Corisa Bell, Edwin Downward, Jaimen Shires, and Amanda Muratoff as we read from our eclectic collection of books. Stop by at 10, grab a cuppa and hear me do my best lion impression and then stick around as we rotate the floor on the hour.
From the Facebook page, for those who like to remain incognito:
All day long we are going to feature our local authors and have them in the bookstore to share their inspiration for creating their books, share their actual stories as well as answer any questions you may have about the book or even about the craft of writing. PLUS all of our authors are happy to sign any purchased books and we'll have door prizes to win signed books.
We're calling it a celebration of writers and we're making it an annual event so please get behind it! #LocalAuthorsDay
Here's the agenda for the day so please come for one or for all of our writers and speakers!
10am - Karen Garry reads from her book "Leroy - Heart Shaped Rawk". A children's book that leads you through a lyrical landscape in this richly painted tale of the life of a lion. Each page composed with heart, rendered by hand.
11am - Rev. Stephen Garrett will be sharing his story "When Cancer Came Knocking" an intimate account of how he, family and friends dealt with the death of his brother Peter and how we can look at our own lives differently so we can live a better and complete life.
