** Christmas Joy on Main Street **

Those of you that live near me, are very aware of our beautiful and quaint Main Street in St. Charles, Missouri. During the Christmas Season, it is filled with charm, enchantment, & so many activities: http://www.stcharleschristmas.com/

Please stop by Main Street Books this Saturday, December 12th, from 1:00 to 3:00pm for a special event:

Chicken Soup for the Soul….Canned Soup for the Body

Seven St. Charles/St. Louis area Chicken Soup for the Soul writers will participate in a multi-author book-signing on Saturday, December 12th, 2009 from 1-3 p.m. at Main Street Books, 307 S. Main Street, St. Charles, MO 63301. Customers can bring in a canned good to be donated to a St. Charles food pantry and receive 10% off their entire purchase that day. Refreshments will be served at the signing. For more information, please visit: http://www.mainstreetbooks.net/.

I will be part of this with my writer-gal-friends: Tammy Goodsell, Teri Sanders, Linda O'Connell, Pat Wahler, Sherri Stanczak, and Patsy Zettler. Between the 7 of us, I think we must be published in about 20 Chicken Soup for the Soul books! Purchase some wonderful, autographed books, enjoy some free refreshments, and help a good cause by bringing at least one canned good!! And, no, they don't have to be canned soup! Any canned good will be greatly appreciated!!
