I just recently learned that this Sunday, April 23rd, is World Book Day. If you follow my site–and if you’re new, just poke around for a second to see–you’ll know as a reader and writer, books are very important to me. I love encouraging reading of all kinds, whether fiction or non-fiction, current events or those long ago, and any other type of reading that catches your fancy. Through reading, we expand our minds, experience things we might not be able to in daily life for whatever reason, and learn about people and places that we otherwise wouldn’t know. These are all elements that have the potential to make us more compassionate, flexible, and knowledgeable people.
Drop a note in the comments if you have a question about my books or want to share your own thoughts about reading.
For those of you in the Reno, Nevada, area, you can celebrate both World Book Day and Earth Day at the Reno Earth Day event from 11 am to 6 pm in Idlewild Park on Sunday. Admission is free for visitors of all ages, and there will be food, entertainment, activities, and booths with all sorts of interesting things to explore.
I will be there at the combined TTO Publishing/Pynhavyn Books, Baubles & Bonnets booth (1020 in the California Building down by the science fair) to answer questions, sign books, and introduce new readers to my various publications. Joining me are additional local authors, including Renee Averett, as well as Colin Fisk, my husband and a talented wildlife photographer.
We’ll have books available for purchase (and signing) in a wide variety of genres (children’s, young adult, and adult), including science fiction, steampunk, urban fantasy, mystery/suspense, cooking, and historical, contemporary, and paranormal romance. There will also be prints (of birds, insects, plants, and more) as well as necklaces and bracelets to purchase.
There’s much to entertain, admire, and amaze, so I hope you will drop by if you’re in the area. Bring your friends and family with you.
