TGIF: Local Books for Holiday Gifts

It’s a great time to begin stocking up on books signed by area authors for Christmas gifts to friends and family. Below are book events happening in the North Idaho area taking place this weekend and the coming week:

This evening at Aunties Bookstore in Spokane, inspirational speaker Therese Marszalek discusses her book, From the Wilderness to the Miraculous, in which she describes how the reader can persevere through difficulties and find God's path out of all uncertainties.

Saturday evening at Aunties, local musician, d.j. and music producer Kenny Knight signs copies of his memoir, Unknown Rock Star.

Sunday afternoon local authors will be on hand to autograph and sell their books for an event titled Stories on the Mountain, a meet-the-author gift fair taking place at the historic Pleasant View School in Post Falls. Three authors will read excerpts from their work during the event: B.J. Campbell will present her book, Cougar Bob; Michael Marsden will present his book, Sam d'Bear; and Nancy Owens Barnes will read from her book, South to Alaska.

Next week, a mother/son holiday book signing featuring two of Sandpoint's beloved teachers, Marianne Love and son Willie Love, will take place at Vanderford’s Books. Marianne Love is the author of three books, including the most recent, Lessons with Love, in which son Willie contributed. Marianne was an English teacher at Sandpoint High School for many years, and now her son is a teacher at Sandpoint High School. Enjoy meeting these two well-known local writers.
Vanderford's Books, 201 Cedar St., Sandpoint
