Borders, here I come!

March 29, 2010

I have a reading scheduled at Borders on Sunday, April 11; noon to 2pm! It’s the south Austin Borders at Westgate, details below. Yay! Perfect for national poetry month. I’m curious to see how the big box store experience will compare to Book Woman. That particular branch prides itself on a thriving local section, and the manager has been a sweetheart so far. I know from attending Nadia Sahari‘s Border’s signing that the potential for walk through traffic exposure in national chain stores is amazing. If you’re local & free, please come by for some Seattle’s coffee and stop by to say hi and make me look popular. Oh and help show Borders that even a little ole local poet can sell books, I must obligatorily add 😉 But I love seeing you just in pure support no matter what!

Come celebrate National Poetry Month at Borders Westgate in South Austin! Agnes Eva Savich will be reading and signing copies of her debut poetry book, The Watcher: Poems.

A little about Borders Westgate location, from Shauna Johnson, General Manager:
Welcome to Borders at Westgate in Austin, at the corner of South Lamar and Westgate Boulevard. Stop by our local interest section and ask for Michael. This huge history buff has been at our location for eight years. Currently, he recommends the book Every Town Needs a Trail by Jen Ohlson, a beautiful photography book on Lady Bird Lake and the walking trail surrounding it. This selection should appeal to residents and visitors alike. However, don’t miss other members of our dedicated and knowledgeable staff who are also passionate about other topics; they want nothing more than to pass their passion on to you! To enhance your enjoyment of our location, don’t forget to stop by our Seattle’s Best Cafe and ask our great baristas to whip you up something tasty!
