Three Edmonds authors will be participating at the annual Holiday Book Fair Sunday, Nov. 21, from 1-5 p.m. at Bothell’s Courtyard Hall in Country Village.
They are among the more than 20 authors who will be on hand, including Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Jerry Gay, NBA All-Star and former Sonics player James Donaldson, Ed Nixon, brother of former president Richard Nixon, Hall of Fame basketball coach Chuck Randall, and award-winning authors Paul Hansen, Mary Pelzel and Wally Carlson.
Local authors include Robert Nitschke, who will sign his book “Creating a Collaborative Enterprise,” and Rita Bennett, author of “Heaven Tours,” a sequel to her book, “To Heaven and Back,” about people who have had near-death experiences. In addition, Barbara Kindness, who organized the book fair event, co-authored “My Impossible Dream — The Story of Chuck Randall.”
“Whether your taste is history, business, romance, cookbooks, children’s literature, fantasy, inspirational, general fiction – whatever – you’ll find it here,” Kindness said.
Special presentations will be given by Gay, author of Seeing Reality, and Donaldson, author of Standing above the Crowd. A panel discussion: “Self-Publishing – the Joys and Jeopardies,” will include a publisher, a self-published author and a marketing expert. Door prizes and bookstore coupons will be available.
The event is being cosponsored by JJ Books at Country Village and the Seattle Chapter of Women’s National Book Association. For more information, call 206-473-9416 or 425-398-7981 or visit www.belvaslist.com.
