Fall Book Signing
But before you head out onto the Blue Ridge Parkway to leaf-look, we invite you to come downtown and check out the work from two of our favorite local authors, this Saturday, October 13, 2018 from 11am to 4pm.
We will hosting a “double-header” book signing by:
- Photograher & Writer, Ruth Rosauer, “These Trees”
- Sports Ballad Writer, William Stanish, “The End of the Curse”
Ruth’s wonderful book “These Trees” is a summary in photographs of her lifelong affair with trees.
Ruth says, “There are trees that just make me drop to my knees in wonder. Trees that stop me in my tracks and draw me in to trace their bark with my fingers or peer through their leaves to try to see the landscape framed through the foliage.”
William’s book, The End of the Curse will also be available. The End of the Curse is the book that lets you relive the Game of the Century when the Chicago Cubs broke the “Curse” to win Game 7 of the 2016 World Series, ending a 108-year championship drought.
Both authors offer free personalization with each book purchase, so we invite you come by MOUNTAIN MADE and check out these wonderful books for yourself.
