Next, I wanted to let you know about a couple author events taking place in Alexandria, Virginia:
The first is a Book Launch Party for Julie Kraut, author of "Slept Away," the story of a young city woman, mightily attached to both friends and technology, who is sent to a rustic sleepaway camp for the summer. Sunday, June 7, at 2 p.m. at Hooray For Books! 1555 King St., Alexandria, VA,703-548-4092; http://www.hooray4books.com/
The second is a chance to meet Jenny Han, author of "Shug," who is touring to promote her latest book, "The Summer I Turned Pretty." Sunday, June 14, at 2 p.m. at Hooray For Books! 1555 King St., Alexandria, VA, 703-548-4092;
So if you live in either of these places or can easily make it, please think about showing up and showing your suppport...and you know, having a great time. What could be better?!
