Authors at Third Place Books January 12 - 15

Saturday, January 8, 2011

Third Place Books at LFP Towne Centre is a major stop on the book circuit for 
authors promoting new books. Authors generally read from their books, sometimes answer a few questions, and then autograph the copies that people have purchased. Most of the events take place in The Den, a cozy area in the middle of the store.
