This year, we’ve added new marketing venue—bookstore signing events. In addition to our beloved Broadway Fall Festival table, we’ve had a book signing at the New Chapter Bookstore in Lewisburg, West Virginia, and this month, we’re visiting the Winchester Book Gallery on Loudoun Street for another signing event. Stop by if you’re in Winchester on November 4 from 11 – 1 on November 4. We’d love to see you!
