Valerie Tripp at Pelican Bookstore

We just wanted to give a big thanks to Valerie Tripp, author of several American Girl books, and everyone who came to our tea party at Backstreet Cafe! It was a big success and we sold out of tickets! Everyone had a great time and several dolls came to the party too! Here are a couple of photos from the event.

Mary Kay Andrews new book Spring Fever… One of my favorites by Ms. Andrews is The Fixer Upper.  She writes the perfect beach read. Also out is Sea Change by Karen White, always a favorite in our bookstore.




And our own Jack DeGroot will release her new book in a few weeks.  She is our local answer to the Fifty shades of Grey books.  Actually we think her books are better you can recognize people and places around our area.
