The Birmingham Public Library is hosting an Author’s Expo on December 1 and December 2. At last count, nearly 40 authors have plans to be there, selling and signing.
It seems a good chance to pick up a few unique Christmas presents.
Nicholas Sparks is signing Dear John this Thursday (11/9) at Books-A-Million inside Brookwood Mall. Line numbers will be distributed beginning at 9 AM the day of the event.
You can call 205.870.0213 to get a copy. And if you sign-up for their email program they’ll send you a coupon for $2 off.
I just found a book-centric forum buried in al.com. It’s still active with just a handful of posts each month. But it’s been running since 2002. Good to know that Birmingham has things like this out there. I just wish they weren’t so hard to find!
Jim Baggett of the Birmingham Library is leading an hour-long walking tour of downtown’s notorious historic sites. It’s planned for October 27th at 5:45 pm. Their blog says it’ll cover “murders, mysteries and fallen women”.
How fun does that sound? The weather is perfect and the event is free, though you do need to call them and make a reservation.
