Big book signing at the beach!

Browseabout presents Authors Days

23 popular authors to appear November 23-25

Delaware’s premier independent bookstore since 1975, Browseabout Books, takes its dedication to its community of readers to a new level as it hosts 23 authors to meet and greet and sign books for their fans during the first annual Browseabout Authors Days, Friday November 23 – Sunday November 25.

Created by owner Steve Crane, the event expands Browseabout’s ongoing commitment to support talented local authors and publishers by giving them a forum and opportunities to showcase their work.

“We looked for the best of the best from the local and regional writing scene,” said store manager Susan McAnelly. “We looked for authors with a proven track record whose works are well-written and well-received, and for those who contribute to our community.”

The authors, with works covering the breadth of today’s publishing industry, enthusiastically responded. Books heralding from such internationally recognized publishing houses such as St. Martin’s Press, Dutton, and Arcadia, and from rapidly growing publishers such as A and M, will be offered alongside very successful self-publications, and encompass a full range of topics and genres that include Children, Young Adult, Graphic Novels, War, Romance, Emotional Drama, Mystery, Murder, Humor, Action and Adventure, Personal Growth and Survival, Local History, Poetry, and Rehoboth Beach.

“A unique resort requires a unique book,” says Rich Barnett, author of The Discreet Charms of a Bourgeois Beach Town (appearing 3-5 p.m. Friday November 23). Soaring in popularity, the book provides insights, heart, humor and a sense of curiosity that gives readers an unsurpassed insider’s view of Rehoboth Beach.

Fans of young adult literature will be thrilled by the Capital Girls trilogy, co-authored by Maz Rauber and Amy Reingold under the pseudonym Ella Monroe (appearing 1-3 p.m. Saturday November 24). Published by St. Martin’s Press, Capital Girls is a story of mystery, adventure and intrigue as four in-crowd girls recklessly flirt with danger and guys – including the President’s son –until one of them dies in a mysterious accident, shaking their bonds of friendship and compelling secret revelations with unfathomable consequences.

A personalized book by a favorite author makes a cherished gift, and the Delaware Humane Society will be providing free gift-wrapping throughout the event, with all donations going directly to the charity.

Browseabout Authors Days runs from Friday November 23 – Sunday November 25, with most authors appearing between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. at Browseabout Books, 133 Rehoboth Avenue (telephone: 226-2665).  More information and a complete event schedule are available at BrowseaboutBooks.com.
