Local Authors Supporting Local Nonprofits
Friday, December 7, 2012 – 6-8 p.m.
Ginger Jenks, author of “Wag, Live, Love – What Dogs Teach Us About Happiness and Life” is part of the Giving Back Gang.
Join us at Maria’s Bookshop, which is hosting an event a showcasing 18 of SW Colorado’s most talented and generous authors, who have each selected a local nonprofit organization to support by donating a share of the proceeds from the sale of their books December 1-7.
The range of titles provides great selection for holiday gift shopping! Your gift will benefit not only your recipient, but a local non-profit as well.
Please help spread the word, and plan to come by Maria’s this Friday evening.
