Book sale to open

Author Susan J. Kroupa

The 9th annual Book Sale Fundraiser at the Reynolds Homestead will open on Sunday, June 4 at 2 p.m.,  with award-winning writer Susan J. Kroupa slated to give a presentation.

While she is best known for the Doodlebugged Mysteries featuring the beloved bed bug sniffing labradoodle, Doodle, Kroupa  also is an accomplished speaker, photographer and musician

Her books are crafted for young adult readers, but enjoyed by adults as well. Her writing has been featured in The Arizona Republic, Shapeshifter, and American Forests magazines.

After living and working in Utah for many years, Kroupa and her husband moved to Laurel Fork, where they live with their own labradoodle.

Kroupa’s books will be for sale after the event.  Immediately following her talk, the book sale will remain open until 5 p.m.

“This is a great opportunity to get your summer reading for a discount,” said organizer Beth Ford, historical services assistant at the Reynolds Homestead. “We encourage everyone to come early and bring friends to enjoy meeting a local author, having refreshments, and shopping for books.”

In addition to the book sale, a Silent Art Auction will be held as part of the fundraising effort to help provide summer programming at the Homestead.

The sale and auction will continue Monday through Thursday, June 5-8, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

For more information, or to donate books or art to the sale, call Ford at 276-694-7181 extension 29, or e-mail
