You’re Invited – Holiday Author Open House 11/28 in Chandler, AZ
If you’re one of those fortunate people like me who lives or winters in the Valley of the Sun – with a high today for Black Friday of 70° – you are welcome and invited to join me and a handful of other local authors for an open house at my home in Chandler this coming Wednesday, November 28.
The authors pictured below will be in attendance – and we’ll also have books from other authors, as well.
It’s a different way to meet authors, mingle with fellow bibliophiles, buy gifts that might stay out of the landfill longer than 12 days (the average time a toy lasts before it breaks*) and have them personalized to the recipient. We’ll have hot cocoa, coffee, and other refreshments, music, prizes in a fun holiday atmosphere.
The event runs from 2 to 8 p.m., so plan to drop by anytime during those hours. No need to RSVP. Please bring a friend and share this information. We look forward to having you visit with us to get your holiday shopping underway, further along, or finished!

P.S. Did you know that Iceland has a long history of celebrating Christmas Eve by exchanging books as gifts, and then spending the evening reading them? The celebration is known as Jólabókaflóð, which translates to “Christmas Book Flood.” Iceland is the world’s third most literate country, following only Finland and Norway.**
