Society of Southwestern Authors- 2009 Holiday Book Fair

Nov. 15: SSA’S Holiday Book Fair

        There will be NO FORUM this month. Instead, SSA holds its 5th Annual
Holiday Book Fair at the Four Points Sheraton Conference Center.   The doors
will open to authors and volunteers at 11:00 AM.   Admission is free to the
public 11:30AM-3:00PM.

         Our special guest this year is David Fitzsimmons, editorial cartoonist
for the Arizona Daily Star. If you’ve ever seen him at a charity event, you
know we’re in for a treat of a wild ride! Fitz will do caricatures and sign
autographs beginning at 2:00PM.

   Go to www.wranglingwithwriting.com, download and print out the coupon for
the Book Fair, and bring it and a couple of things for the Community Food
Bank and receive 10% off of the most expensive item you’ll purchase at the
Book Fair.

   This is an excellent opportunity to market your work to the Tucson
community in time for holiday giving. Or, if you don’t have your own book to
sell yet, bring your friends and neighbors to shop for gifts that never wear
out, are always the right size, and never go bad-great
