There were several book signings scheduled on the same December 6th Saturday.

xmasbooksigningslivemusic-003The 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.xmasbooksigningslivemusic-002
