Cache of Catch-Up Books for the Holidays


Martin, J C, AZ Daily Star


With this edition of Southern Arizona Authors we're playing catch up. Because of our continuously growing backlog of titles, some of which have been waiting to be included in the column since midsummer, and considering the approaching holiday book buying season, we decided to include titles received by Nov. 1. That means almost three times as many books as usually included, which also means descriptions will be not just brief, but very brief.

People write books for many reasons but one goal they all share: they'd like to have their books read. Local independent booksellers who will either have or find local authors' books are Mostly Books, 6208 E. Speedway, 571-0110 and Antigone Books, 411 N. Fourth Ave., 792-3715. Books are also listed on Amazon.com
