Congrats to book giveaway winners

Congrats to Bill Barrett, who yesterday won the basket of books donated to the Mechanicsburgy Mystery Book Shop by the Susquehanna Writers.
By an odd coincidence, Joe Barrett won Saturday's drawing for the basket of books at the Midtown Scholar Bookstore in Harrisburg.
Preceding Saturday's drawing, Mike Silvestri gave a fascinating talk on Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 as part of The Big Read.

Mike donated a copy of "Bark of the Tree" to the basket, which the group provided to the bookstore in celebration of National Bookstore Day.

Four other members of the Susquehanna Writers were on hand for the drawing.

Don Helin, who contributed a copy of "Thy Kingdom Come"

Tina Crone, who contributed "The Yellow Stone"

Lori Myers

Cate Masters, who donated "Picture This" and "One Soul for Sale"

Afterward, Mike had a signing for his new scifi anthology, It Came From Beyond the Sun.

I even signed a copy of One Soul for Sale!

Enjoy your books, Joe and Bill Barrett!

I'll bet the talk on Fahrenheit 451 was interesting. I read it to my son as a bed time story a few years ago. Now he's in high school, and discussing it in class, and is glad for our discussions.

Yes, Mike Silvestri did a great job pointing out Bradbury's genius in writing about contemporary devices before they were invented! Thought provoking.
