Cherry Street Books in Alexandria will celebrate regional writers with four authors scheduled to be on hand for book signings on Saturday, March 26 from noon to 2 p.m.
The four authors being featured are:
• Deb Mercier's newest book is Wrestling with a Werewolf, which she co-authored with Ryan Jacobson. The book is a funny, action-packed sports adventure that will appeal to both boys and girls ages 8 to 12. Other titles by Mercier are The Cat and the Canvas, The Captain's Hat and The Adventures of Molly & Skunky. She lives in Glenwood with her husband and two children.
• Brook Mounsdon is a high school student from Evansville who has written a romance novel called The Secret Passage. The story is based on Alice, an ex-supermodel who is wrestling with guilt over a tragic car accident that took the lives of her young husband and their unborn child. As she works to rescue abused horses, she also begins a new relationship and tries to come to terms with the past. The book is described as a "heartwarming story of love, forgiveness and second chances."
• Forward Ho! The Life of Rin Tin Tin Actor James Brown was written by Parkers Prairie resident, Linda Ruhl. She wanted to memorialize this fine actor and spent many years researching his life. Brown's two daughters cooperated with the project and were a tremendous help in Ruhl's research. The book includes personal anecdotes and family photos not previously seen by the general public.
• Split Rock Lighthouse – A Photographer's Perspective will be presented by photographer and author John Caughlan from St. Cloud. Fellow photographer, Doug Ohman, says in the book's foreword that Split Rock Lighthouse is one of the most loved and recognized historic and scenic sights in all of Minnesota.
The public is invited to stop in at Cherry Street Books and meet these talented guests. The bookstore is located at 503 Broadway in downtown Alexandria.
