There were several book signings scheduled on the same December 6th Saturday.
The East Moline Public Library hosted its annual Christmas Open House and local weatherman Gary Metivier, as well as 3 published romance authors (pictured) were present. Also present was Mrs. Claus and friend.
The Midwest Writing Center had its book signing event from 2 to 4, and, among others signing, were Mike McCarty and Mark McLaughlin (pictured) and me. (I arrived late, as I had been at the East Moline event.)
That evening, the Silvis Public Library had its annual Christmas Walk. Pictured is the Alex McGehee family. Alex is a former student and his wife (a Cosgrave) was not, but certainly resembles the other Cosgrave students that I did have back at Silvis Junior High. They are pictured with their lovely family. There were sleigh rides and Rob Storm did an ice sculpture of a Christmas tree outside the fire station. The only drawback to the Silvis Annual Christmas Walk was that it was bitterly cold outside, at least 10 degrees below normal.
Still, a good time was had by all.
