Leigh Maguire and Catherine MacDonald kick off
the holiday season!
Leigh Maguire and Catherine MacDonald will be at Barnes&Noble
in Reno, NV on the Sunday after Thanksgiving (11/26/06)
from 2 - 5 pm. Kristie will be signing her novels
Desert Heat and Cabin Fever from the Affairs of the
Heart series. Catherine will be signing her novels
Road Queens and Coming Home.
Caddie, the Customer Relations Manager at BN, has
declared this a "women's day out." In conjunction
with the signing, the AAUW will be at the store sponsoring
a literacy campaign.
The American Association of University Women promotes
equity for all women and girls, lifelong education,
and positive societal change. The Educational Foundation
provides funds to advance education, research, and
self-development for women and to foster equity and
positive societal change. For more than 125 years,
AAUW has been one of the nation’s leading voices promoting
education and equity for women and girls. Through
its nationwide network, AAUW opens doors for women
and girls and influences public debate on critical
social issues such as education, civil rights, and
workplace equity. AAUW sponsors community programs;
publishes groundbreaking research on women, girls,
and education; is one of the world’s largest sources
of funding exclusively for graduate women; and fights
sex discrimination in education.
Barnes&Noble will donate part of the proceeds
from the sales of Kristie's and Cathie's books to
the literacy campaign.
