“Meet the Alliance Authors”, a successful seven-week series showcasing local authors discussing their books and the process of writing and getting published, was recently presented by the Sandwich Arts Alliance. To finalize the series the writers are holding a Holiday Book Sale, free to the public, this Saturday, December 7th from 1-6 pm at the Sandwich Arts Alliance Center, 124 Route 6A, Sandwich.
Most of these authors from the series will be present at the Book Sale to sign their books. The list of local novelists, biographers, memoirists, children's writers, inspirational writers and song writers who were featured in the series includes Bob Aubin, Paulette Boudrot, Dean Coe, J.J. Cunis, Jana Dillon, Sidney Fryer, Catherine Kelly-Mahon, Carolyn LeComte, Christie Lowrance, Alison McLennan, Christina Nordstrom, Jim Petipas, Bob Reese, Christina Laurie and Donna Rockwell.
“This is a wonderful chance to delight the readers on your holiday gift list by selecting personally inscribed books while enjoying a chat with the authors over a cup of hot cocoa,” enthused author and Author Series event manager Christie Lowrance.
Those attending the event will find a rich assortment of fiction, non-fiction, biography, poetry and many children’s books about subjects ranging from leprechauns, starfish, and Native American legends to Rock Harbor clam trees, charming weasels and medical issues.
“Books make a perfect thank-you for teachers, schools, and your favorite librarians”, added Lowrance.
In addition to the Book Sale, the writers will be offering an exciting gift basket raffle, and they expect a special friend in red (Dean Coe) to show up for selfies from 4 to 6 pm.
