BOOK OF MERCY: Book Launch Party

Have fun Author Sherry Roberts invites you to celebrate the debut of Book of Mercy. In this new novel, unforgettable characters deal with library book banning in a small North Carolina town. Sherry will offer a brief reading, open the evening up for discussion, and afterward will sign copies of her books.

Join us for a casual evening of food, wine, books, and art. Homewood Studios will be featuring a fetching exhibit called Printed Poetry, in which letter press artists have been invited to push the boundaries of printed poetry by exploring new methods of interpreting poetry and imaginative ways of setting type.

Be part of the solution Since the issues of literacy and censorship are close to her heart, Sherry also invites you to support the work of the Minnesota Literacy Council at this event. Bring a NEW children's book to donate to the council's preschool through grade 3 reading program OR contribute a tax-deductible donation to the council. Please make checks payable to the Minnesota Literacy Council. Sherry will arrange for the books and donations to be delivered to the council.

Reading and discussion begins at 7p. Free and open to the public.

From Sherry Roberts:

Thanks to all who came to my book launch. You were an incredible audience. I had so much fun talking with all of you. Also a special thanks to George and Beverly Roberts for providing such a wonderful venue. Books, art, and friends. Is there a better combination?
