As part of the 2016 Arts & Crafts Fair at Sun City Anthem, Henderson, Nevada, members of Anthem Authors conducted a book signing event on Saturday, April 2. The fair took place in the Sun City Anthem Recreation Center, where shoppers could not only purchase books, but also jewelry, ceramics, dolls, clothing, paintings, photographs, and dozens of other arts and crafts created by the residents.
Ten members of Anthem Authors sold their books to the crowd of visitors at the popular annual event. I had hardcover and large print editions available of both Eagle Talons and Bear Claws, the first two books in The Iron Horse Chronicles. Several folks who had purchased Eagle Talons during last year’s event returned this year to pick up an autographed copy of Bear Claws. I fielded many questions about when Golden Spike, the final book in the trilogy will be available.
From the rear windows, patios, and lawns of the Sun City Anthem Recreation Center, members and visitors have this great view of the Las Vegas Valley.
The hotels and casinos lining the Strip are visible in the distance over the roofs of the nearby residences. Our book signing tables were next to the huge bank of picture windows providing us this view of the most populace place in Nevada. The Las Vegas Valley is home to about two million of the nearly three million people who now inhabit the state.
