This Thursday, during the Downtown Farmer’s Market, we will be hosting our 8th OFF THE SHELF Author Series of the summer. The OTS series is designed to be more than just a casual book signing. It is free to the public and is a chance to not only meet numerous local authors, but also enjoy fun and entertaining workshops, readings, talks and presentations by them.
Two special authors will be joining us for this special event. At 6:15pm, Rebecca Carpenter, Author of The Total Destruction of Chloe Wilson, will be doing a presentation on Teen Pregnancy. Rebecca will be discussing statistics of teen pregnancy and the generational consequences that follow, as well as sharing her personal experiences of what it was like to be a teen parent and how it affected her life. At 7:00pm, Lucinda Stein, Award winning author of Spiral of Darkness and Sanctuary, will discuss how she transformed a Colorado urban legend into a novel. Though truth may be stranger than fiction, Stein argues that her murder mystery, Spiral of Darkness, challenges that idea.
On Wednesday, August 30th, tune into KREX TV’s Noon News to watch an interview with these two wonderful authors.
Join us at CRYSTAL Books and Gifts at 439 Main Street in Downtown Grand Junction on July 31st. between 6:00 and 8:00pm. Seating is limited.
