Holiday Book Sale—Authors from Fremont Area Writers packed their wares and set up shop in Newpark Mall on Black Friday weekend, Nov.  28-29, hoping for buyers. Despite being located at one end of the mall where foot traffic was light, writers sold 48 books, two ebooks, and an audio book.

Books for sale were available in genres including mystery, thriller, humor, religion, art, science, history, poetry, and memoir. Among the authors were Jan Small, Robert Davis, Tova Dian Dean, Nancy Curteman, Urmila Patel, Kymberlie Ingalls, Laila El-Sissi, Ameena Saeed, Barbara Hawkins, Rachelle Ayala, and Arthur Carey.

 

The book signing and sale were organized by Jan Small. Prospective buyers got free bookmarks, candy, and cookies. Paintings by Jan’s students adorned the walls of the sales area, located in the mall’s cultural corner.
