MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY: A reading and signing in Champaign, IL

Sunday 2:00 PM
Come and hear a talk about and a reading from Elizabeth Berg's cheerful MAKE SOMEONE HAPPY: Favorite Postings.
This book was done at the request of Facebook fans who wanted to have a book of postings to, as one person said, "keep by the bedside or take on a plane."
This book seems to have struck a chord; friends give it to friends, mothers to daughters, daughters to mothers, husbands to wives and vice-versa, and one therapist keeps it in her waiting room to soothe souls. Flowers will be present for all to enjoy, and refreshments will be served.
AND: free gift wrap will be provided!
Please note that only cash or checks can be accepted for the purchase of Elizabeth's books.
