Book Signing with Mark Lyon
October 5 from 5 - 6PM
Actor, storyteller, and playwright Mark Lyon has been enchanting audiences from California to Florida with his unique blend of songs and stories. You may have seen him conducting ghost tours for over a decade in Nevada City and Grass Valley, in which he relates the true tales behind wraiths said to haunt the town's historic buildings and byways. His most recent work is the 2018 docudrama "Phantoms of the Holbrooke" in which Mark shines light onto the hotel's history and breathes new life into it's ghosts... 
Mark will be with us from 5:00 to 6:00 to share some of his tales as well as autograph books. Don't miss this spooky evening of local history!
October 12 from 1 - 3:30PM
To celebrate the release of the illustrated edition of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, The Book Seller is having our very own Triwizard Tournament. We're inviting Potterheads of all ages to attend, and costumes are encouraged! We'll be keeping the actual events of the tournament pretty hush-hush, so come by any time between 1 and 3:30 on October 12 to participate.

Book Signing with R.L. Crabb
October 20 at 4:00PM
Crabb currently writes, draws, and occasionally stars in “It Takes a Village Idiot“, every Saturday in the Grass Valley Union. A virtual smorgasbord of half baked schemes, barbecued sacred cows, stuffed shirts, lame ducks, odd birds, and all the corn you can stomach, the author vacillates between long-winded diatribes of questionable logic and stark images of respectable citizens in compromising positions. 
Join us on the evening of October 20 beginning at 4:00PM, where R.L. Crabb will be here presenting his latest publication "The World Is Askew," which is currently available to pre-order.
