Festivals, Caregiving & Salvation Get Booked

occbf.JPGOur Facebook users shared a host of literary events for our regular Booked feature.

Author Cindy Laverty will read portions and autograph her new book, Caregiving: Eldercare Made Clear & Simple at Chaucer’s Bookstore (Santa Barbara, CA) on Thursday, September 2nd from 7:00pm-9:00pm. She invites everybody to stop by and say hi!

Sigrid Nunez will be at 82nd Street Barnes & Noble (New York, NY) promoting her new book, Salvation City on Thursday, September 16th starting 7:00pm. Salvation City is a story of love, betrayal, and forgiveness. It is about spiritual and moral growth, and the consolation of art. It is about belief—belief in God and belief in self.

Orange County Children’s Book Festival will take place on Sunday, October 3rd from 9:30am to 4:30pm at Orange Coast College (Costa Mesa, CA). Authors James Doti, Amber Benson, Jessica Brody, Nancy Holder, Lauren Kate, and many more will attend.
