How fun to celebrate a local author!
Agreed, there are so many talents people in our community.
It is one thing to have a friend (or family member) who is a writer .. i mean that is just plain fun and how can we not read their books? But here’s the deal – Kim’s writing is incredible — i have so completely enjoyed every book i’ve read, and even bought extra copies to send to family members. Add to that — she is so darn humble about her amazing gift! we are so very lucky!!!
Wow, that’s quite a gift basket… but not sure I’ll make it to the event, so I’d be thrilled with the book. Love supporting our local authors, and this may be good fodder for my book club!
I love visiting The Book Seller! Sounds like a fun event on Saturday… will try to stop by!
I keep giving Kim’s books to my niece in Colorado, who passes them around to all her friends. Can’t wait to read the new one. Can’t wait to visit The Bookseller on Saturday for all this hoopla! Cheers to Kit Hattem for her hard work running the place and to Erin for noticing.
This Kiwi soooo needs one of those bags, and of course Kim’s latest book!
Celebrating Books and celebrating Kim! Two things that make me very happy!
“People think being alone makes you lonely, but I don’t think that’s true. Being surrounded by the wrong people is the loneliest thing in the world.”… I love this quote and get such a kick out of knowing the author is a Nevada County neighbor!!
Wonderful to see that the big box book stores and Amazon has not killed the local, small town bookstore and the hard bound printed book.
What a fun way to celebrate books and a local author.
The design on the bag is pretty cool, too!
We are so lucky to have such a full service book store in our community. The selection is great and the staff is really fantastic. I especially love the help I’ve gotten in the children’s section. It’s a great book store!!
Yay! Congrats Kim for a great looking new book! I cannot wait to read! And I love all the photos of Bookseller. My kids love that there is a room for kids books. With a cave. With fish. People must go 🙂
Yeah for other authors celebrating each other! And yeah for The Book Seller for both selling your books.
I can’t wait to read the new book! The basket looks heavenly. Erin, thanks for your promotional skills-and you’re a great mom too! I’ll try to go to the 5 pm event at Forest-sounds like fun!!!
Thanks Heather, glad to know I’ve got the parenting approval from you 🙂 The basket is full of all sorts of goodies, you should definitely go to the event.
What a wonderful subject for the blog 🙂
I grew up going to this bookstore and now my kids love going there too. Every time we go to visit Grandma, they want to go to the Bookseller! Grass Valley is lucky to have such a unique local bookstore.
Oh thanks so much for the comment Callie… my job to remind you of all the treasures in your hometown, even if you’re away. And Kim’s new book will make you think of Nevada City.
Thanks so much Erin and everybody for your beautiful support! Wow, we are sooo fortunate!
Love the BookSeller! Can’t wait for Saturday!
