Book fest with Tom Poole of PCTV

Below is a press release reminder of our Barnes & Noble event this Saturday. Most of the producers being showcased at this venue work with youth or are youth themselves. This is an excellent opportunity to bring children that are close to your heart

Since this store is closing at the end of the month many of the books will be 40% off (perfect for Holiday shopping) and, just as importantly, PCTV will receive a potion of the total sales for the time period that we are presenting. So come down some time between 10am and 4pm and let family, friends and associates know about our book fair. And bring your vouchers for PCTV to be credited for a sale the vouchers need to be presented)
