Friends of Homewood Library are having a huge used booksale (pdf) this weekend. They say 8,000 books are on hand and have never been in the store before. Word on the street is that prices will start at a quarter.
Festivities start Friday night, August 18th. The doors are also open Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
Thanks CC for the tip.
Sonny Brewer is signing A Sound Like Thunder today at the Alabama Booksmith. The authographs start flying at 4pm.
This Thursday (Aug. 10th) Eclipse Coffee & Books in Montevallo will host a book release party for Gregory L. Reese’s “Elvis Religion” starting at 7 pm.
The book explores the fantastically fanatical following surrounding Evis Presely. The event features readings by the author (who teaches at the Univ. of Montevallo), Elvis impersonators, free food and a screening of the “King of Kings” documentary.
