Book Launch coming up in American Fork

I received this email today.  I haven't read the book, but always enjoy going to book launch parties and other opportunities to meet authors.  This book is for ages 10 to 14.

Just wanted to extend an invitation to my upcoming book launch for With a Name Like Love.  Here are the details:

Sat. Oct 8th 3-5pm

American Fork Library
64 South 100 East, AF (Please note the 500 E exit off I-15 is closed due to  construction.)

The American Fork Children's Choir is coming to sing some amazing old gospel songs right at 3:00. There will also be a prize wheel, old fashioned candy counter, craft tables for the kiddos (beaded book marks), and of course a signing. The Kings English is coming down as the bookseller. It should be quite a party!

advance praise for With a Name Like Love:

"Hilmo creates a town, a family and a mystery readers won't soon forget.  A story about home, justice and love, beautifully told."   Kirkus starred review

an American Booksellers Association New Voices pick for 2011!

"Debut novelist Hilmo creates a few truly despicable villains to balance out the goodness of the Love family.   Fans of Ruth White's books will find a similarly affectionate portrait of a close-knit family of modest means, struggling to do good in the world and right by each other."  --  Publisher's Weekly
