Local bookseller McKay Used Books will be hosting a sale on Saturday, 30 July. Eight Virginia authors from Write by the Rails, the Prince William County chapter of the Virginia Writers Club,will be on hand to sign copies of their books for fans and sell them in support of cancer research.
“In the past year we’ve lost two of our members to various forms of cancer. Most recently we lost Robert F. Dorr, author of over 75 books on aviation and hundreds of articles,” said organizer Victor Rook . “In October of 2015 we lost author Marvin Josaitis. Both attended last year’s group signing at McKay’s. We’ve also had several of our current members touched by cancer over the past few years.”
One dollar from each sale will go to cancer care and support.
Authors Antonia Kilday, Natalina Reis, P.M. Hernandez, Carol Covin, Zachary and Mickey Tamer, Maria Yeager, Lincoln Farish, and Victor Rook are scheduled to attend.
I will probably be stopping by in the early afternoon, but I won’t be signing anything other than ransom demands, confessions, and my own death warrant. So look for me if you stop by.
The “Super Summer Author Fair” will take place from 11am to 5pm on 30 July at McKay Used Books, 8345 Sudley Rd, Manassas, VA.
