  1. Hi! Would you be interested in doing a book signing to sell your book during the Apple Country Fair in Brookfield, MA? The event is Saturday, October 6, from 10-4. The Friends of the Library have a book sale from 10-1. Please let us know what you think!

    • Dear Brenda,
      It is a lovely offer, but I organize the Hatfield Harvest 5K road race, a fundraiser for local agriculture, that morning. The earliest I could get to Brookfield would be 2 p.m. If that interests you, let me know; if not I am open to coming at a different day and time. Thanks.
