Mary at ParkPlace Books in Kirkland is setting up school-visit events in the Lake Washington School District for the week of Feb. 28 through March 4 in conjunction with Read Across America. She's looking for authors willing to spend an hour with students that week and sell one title to them through the store using an advance order form. There's no honoriarium or stipend involved, but as she notes, "The idea is to remind the schools of all you wonderful authors we are lucky enough to have in the area." And to sell books with the help of one of our remaining independents, of course.
If you're a published author (with a book available through standard trade channels) who'd like the exposure or a chance to sell your latest title that week, contact Mary at 425-828-6546 or parkplacebooks (at) Integra (dot) net.
