This year the theme for the Area 7 basket will be, Celebrate the Independent Book Store. I have contacted Around the Block Books in my neighborhood for a donation to the basket. The owners were happy to participate. Please visit the Independent Book Store(s) near you and ask them to include information about their store, their programs for authors, and a gift for the basket. Around the Block Books is contributing a book light and a journal.
You can bring these items with you if you are attending the conference if you can’t make or you prefer not to have to pack any more stuff you can send them to me at the following address:
Bobbi Carducci, 17141 Magic Mountain Drive, Round Hill, VA 20141
Please let me know if you plan to bring something so we can meet and get your contribution in the basket before the drawing.
