Book Notes: Auntie’s packed with author events

Time to mark your calendar for some author events at Auntie’s Bookstore, 402 W. Main Ave.

• On Saturday, local author Miles Athey signs copies of his first novel, “Crab Creek Chronicles: The Beginning,” from 1 to 3 p.m. on the main floor. The historical novel is set in Ritzville and Spokane Falls in 1882. He was originally set to sign books in January, but the event was canceled because of snow.

• On Feb. 15, the Inland Northwest Writers Guild brings in T. Dawn Richard, author of the May Bell List mystery series including “Digging Up Otis,” to share her experience of selling books as a self-published author versus writing with a publisher’s contract and hiring a publicist. She’ll speak on the mezzanine at 6:30 p.m.

• Jim Stinson, a retired Davenport basketball coach and English teacher, will be on the mezzanine at 7 p.m. on Feb. 22 to read from “Remembering the B.” Stinson’s book chronicles the Washington State B Basketball Tournament from 1923 to 2010 and includes 500 photos and a dedication by Sherman Alexie.

• Nicole Manganaro and Steven Siler will sign copies of “Signature Tastes of Spokane” from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Feb. 25 on the main floor. The book has recipes from local restaurants, including biscuits with sausage and gravy from The Flying Pig and vegan meatloaf from Mizuna.
