SECOND SATURDAYS AUTHOR EVENT: PADMA VENKATRAMAN
Saturday, November 8th, 2pm
Padma Venkatraman will read from her latest book, A Time to Dance, just released a few months ago to rave reviews. Following the reading she will answer questions and sign copies of her book, which will be available for purchase.
Loosely based on the inspiring stories of a few “differently-abled” dancers, A Time to Dance tells the story of Veda, a teenager in Chennai, India, who loses a leg in an accident and must re-learn how to dance. Even more it is a novel about spiritual awakening, the power of art, love and the resilience of the human spirit.

Saturday, November 15th, 9am-2pm
We will be selling adult and children’s fiction and non-fiction – $2 for hard-covers and $1 for paperbacks. All children’s books are $.50.
