The Week in Review & A Look Ahead

Week in Review:

Andrea Pearson, Jenni James, & Trist Pinkston @ Pioneer Book, Nov. 19, 2011
      The Princess and the Goblin play was performed at the Orem Library this past Tuesday. The play is based on the classic story by George MacDonald. There will be another free performance on Thursday, December 1st in the library's storytelling wing.

     Saturday, several book things happened. First, the Provo library gave out the free tickets for the upcoming, Dec. 2nd, Christopher Paolini lecture. THEY ARE ALL GONE NOW! But there will be a standby line the day of the lecture. And perhaps the library will have a contest or two to win tickets, who knows?

     Also on Saturday at the Provo City Library, the Friends of the Library hosted a used book sale (that's where I got several of the books below). This book sale is quarterly so look forward to the next one in three months (winter, exact date TBA)!

     From 1 - 3 PM on Saturday, Pioneer Book in Orem hosted a book signing for authors Andrea Pearson, Jenni James, and Tristi Pinkston. These ladies are great and so much fun (the bookstore is great too -that's were several of the other books acquired below came from)!

     And at 2 PM at the Provo Costco there was a book signing for author Richard Paul Evans.
