The Holland Land Office Museum Gift Shop presents a local author book signing just in time for Christmas from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 22. HOLM is located at 131 W. Main St. Batavia.
The following authors will be present to sell and sign their books:
William F. Brown Jr. (of Batavia) – “ The Stafford Story – A golf Club at Ninety.” This is a story of the 90th anniversary of the Stafford Country Club. Pictures and story of the founding and history of the club. Bill has written many interesting history books over the years. A must have for golfers.
Bridgette ni Brian (of Bethany) -- “Azure Maris." What does it mean to be a fish out of water... or a mermaid out of water? Azure Maris, princess of Deep Waters is grounded in the Chesapeake Bay Region and tries to learn how to navigate life above the waves while striving to return home.
Pam Covert (of Elba) – “And so this is Christmas” is her first published book, which takes place in Colton, NY – in the Adirondacks -- where she grew up. Everything is fiction except the town names. She says “ A blank page looks completely different depending on where you are in life and that page appears in front of you. For Jillian Francis, who prefers to quietly and privately mourn the loss of the father of her unborn child, her blank page becomes filled with “everything baby” and “everything Christmas.” Believing herself to be in one of those spaces between life, when life isn’t really happening, she soon discovers that there is no such space, that life is always happening. With the help of friends and family and her own tendency toward wit and sarcasm, Jillian finds her way back to a life she never expected to live, and never expected to love.
Rob Thompson (of Attica) -- “Attica: Gateway to the West” and “Attica: Gateway to the Civil War.” He will be signing the books already published and will be talking about his new book “Linden Murders Solved,” which will be available in June 2013.
These books will make great Christmas presents or purchase one for yourself to keep!
