By Sally Caldera from the Read ’Em and Eat Mysteries by Terrie Farley Moran
Hi, my name is Sally Caldera, Head Librarian of the Beachside Community Library in Fort Myers Beach, Florida. I can’t tell you how lucky we are to have a fabulous café that also functions as a book store right here in town. The owners, Sassy Cabot and Bridgy Mayfield, decorate their tables with author related memorabilia and name their menu items after books and authors. (I love, love, love The Secret Garden salad, with a creamy pecan dressing.) And they have book club meetings! Naturally we all became great friends as soon as the Read ’Em and Eat opened. Just last week, April 8-14, we all celebrated National Library Week. The library sponsored a number of fun events, including author readings, arts and crafts, and yoga lessons. When we celebrated National Library Worker’s Day, Sassy and Bridgy were kind enough to donate dozens of Miss Marple Scones for our festivities.
Our library offers all kinds of wonderful materials to the public, but I am especially proud of our collection of Large Print Books. So many of our patrons are more comfortable reading large print books, we are lucky to be able to give them a terrific selection.
To celebrate libraries our author is offering you a chance to win two copies of Read to Death, a mass market paper back copy for you to keep and a large print copy for your local library.
To enter for a chance to win please comment below and tell us anything at all about large print books. You love to read them, you hate to, your mom reads them, you have never seen one—we want to know. Please include your email in this format: yourname (at) your server (dot) com—so the spambots can’t pick it up.
Comments close at midnight, your time, on Saturday, April 21st.
