Duluth Junior League Festival of Trees- Book Signing

I will be at the Junior League Annual Festival of Trees in Duluth, MN  on Saturday and Sunday November 20 and 21, all day, both days, at the DECC (Duluth Entertianment and Convention Center.) There will be a booth, with the publisher Niagara Press. There are hundreds of booths with vendors, selling everything from books to crafts and anything else might need for Christmas shopping ideas.
I will be signing and selling copies of "When Can I Go Home?"  on both days. A Portion of the proceeds will be from the book sales and will be donated to the National Family Caregivers Association. which is a very relevant organization. Check it out.
There will also be a drawing for a painting from the Kollodge Art Gallery in Duluth. Ken and Kathy are really cook people and owners of that gallery. They lived in Alaska for many years before coming down to Duluth, so they have many insights from their life experience and it shows in their work. Basically anyone that purchases a copy of "When can I Go Home?" will be entered into a free drawing to win the painting. The winner will be drawn Sunday towards the end of the Festival.
I will also have some other helpful information about Alzheimer's available at the booth from the Local Alzheimer's Association as well as the publisher Niagara Press.
There is also a On Line Auction for the Festival of Trees, with all kinds of donated items. I donated two copies of the book for this auction. The Junior League has been around for a long time and for many decades has been a leading organization in the realm of volunteerism and giving back to the community.
