Oh, the weather outside is frightful, but the books are so delightful! If cabin fever makes you determined to venture out this weekend no matter how low the temperature dips, here are a few events worth braving the elements for:
On Friday, B. J. Campbell, author of Close Calls: True Tales of Cougar Bob, is appearing from 11-2 today at Black Sheep in Coeur d'Alene, and Joyce Caudel, author of the Hat Pin Murders, will be at Hastings in Spokane Valley from 12-3. Friday evening, Thomas White will sign copies of his suspense thriller, Justice Rules (set in Spokane) at 7 p.m. at Auntie's Bookstore in Spokane.
On Saturday, Eileen Garvin, author of How to Be a Sister: A Love Story with a Twist of Autism, will appear at Auntie's Bookstore at Riverpark Square at 2 p.m.
Also, a reminder that if you're participating in Our Region Reads by reading Jamie Ford's The Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet--or if you're just interested in the story of the Minidoka Internment Camp--then you'll want to hear historian Robert Sims of the Idaho Humanities Speakers Bureau, Friday at 3 p.m. at the Spirit Lake Library and 6 p.m. at the Athol Library, or Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Hayden Library.
Have a wonderful weekend, get some writing done, and may all your shivers come from a really gripping story instead of the wind chill factor.
