Put Those Books Down For a Sec…So You Can Win More Books

Did you know though that there will be a door prize given away as well? That’s right. Those who attend the program will be entered to win a $20 gift card for a local bookstore. We’ll draw the name at the end of the presentation and one lucky winner will walk away with the gift card right then and there. How cool is that?

That’s not all. A winner will be picked at all five of our presentations. Check our calendar for all the dates. Don’t you want to be one of the lucky five?
