In the spirit of connecting writers with readers, Valley Bookseller and the Daily Grind have partnered up to present Authors After Hours. We will meet one Friday a month at 6:45pm in the Daily Grind. Guest authors will present their work, discuss the writing process and take questions. Attendees must call the store to reserve their spot (max of 20 people) and pay a $5 fee. On the night of the event, arrive by 6:45 and get a free beverage before the Grind closes at 7:00. Presentation will start after everyone is settled in and go until 8:00 or so. The bookstore will be closed by that time as well but everyone will have a chance to shop after hours if they choose.
*NEW FOR 2016: We will have two authors and more of a panel type discussion - sure to be an interesting evening!
Call the store at 651-430-3385 to make your reservation today!
