Authors’ Night at the Centreville library

When I was a little boy, Saturdays were a big day.

My mom would drive whichever boat-like used Buick we were riding in at the time to the big-town county seat of Centreville to “do her dealing.” For Ma that meant going to the fancy new-ish Acme grocery store.

For me it meant going to the library.

I always loved reading and the Centreville library was a gold mine of books. I went from the kids section to the adult section and back again for as long as my mom would allow, borrowing as many books as the librarians would allow.

Tonight, because books make great gifts, I’ll be joining other local authors at the library from 7-9 p.m. to sell and sign our work.

Authors participating in tonight’s Authors’ Night include:

ROBERT BIDINOTTO, the author of HUNTER, which became the #1 Amazon Kindle bestseller in “Mysteries & Thrillers” and “Romantic Suspense,” and a Wall Street Journal “Top Ten Fiction Ebook.”

When I was a little boy, I loved the Centreville library.

I never dreamed some day I’d be selling and signing books there.

Come see us and buy a book for someone you love.

  2. I marked the date on my calendar as soon as I heard about it. In fact, I am bringing my 13 year old granddaughter who loves to write and perhaps she will be inspired by local authors. I guess I’d better bring some money too!
