Being a Connecticut resident, as I am, and a reader of newspapers, as I also am, I've been aware for a while that authors occasionally make appearances at our casinos. Sure, they're usually bestselling adult authors. However, YA author Eric Luper will be at Foxwoods this weekend signing two of his books.
Okay, these two books have a gambling connection. But, come on, a casino recognizing that its customers are interested in reading--that's got to be a good thing.
Learned about this through the NESCBWI listserv, not the local press. But if I see it mentioned this week, I'll let you know.
Hmmm. I haven't been to Foxwoods in a long time. I wonder if there's a bookstore there? That would be interesting.
