Dec 04 2009, 12:09 PM
1 Get your ABCs covered this weekend at Bethel Avenue Book Company, where three local authors spanning the genre gamut will sign and discuss their work. Anna Childs will present “The Big Book of Absolutely Animalistic Alliterations,” an alphabet project she wrote and illustrated for a school assignment at age 14. It’s the first children’s book from Olympia-based Fear Nought Publications. Author Sam Whittaker tells the story of people who have been marginalized by culture and church in his book, “The Exiles Next Door: Singing the Lord’s Song in a Foreign Land.” The book calls for the church to become a force of good, not harm. Former police officer Tim Perry will bring his “Trilogy in Blue: From the Ashes,” an historically based family saga packing fast-paced action punches. The book depicts early 1900s Seattle as it recovers from a devastating fire. In this setting, a young police officer faces a killer that threatens his entire family. Get a book signed from 1-4 p.m. Dec. 5 at 1037 Bethel Avenue in Port Orchard. Info: (360) 876-7500.
