Congrats to Joe Barrett, who won the basket of books donated to the Midtown Scholar Bookstore by the Susquehanna Writers.
Preceding the drawing, Mike Silvestri gave a fascinating talk on Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 as part of The Big Read.
Mike donated a copy of "Bark of the Tree" to the basket, which the group provided to the bookstore in celebration of National Bookstore Day.
Four other members of the Susquehanna Writers were on hand for the drawing.
Don Helin, who contributed a copy of "Thy Kingdom Come"
Tina Crone, who contributed "The Yellow Stone"
Cate Masters, who donated "Picture This" and "One Soul for Sale"
Afterward, Mike had a signing for his new scifi anthology, It Came From Beyond the Sun.
Mike will also be signing copies today at the Mechanicsburg Mystery Book Shop, where the second Susquehanna Writers basket of books awaits a lucky winner. The drawing is this afternoon, so you still have time to rush over there and enter!
