How Can You Meet and Greet Author Rob Phillips?

I have to give a huge shout-out to our locally owned Encore Books and their 2022 Summer Author Series where they are hosting a local author every Saturday in the month of July!

Saturday, July 9th 2022 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm 

According to Encore Books Event Page

With his much anticipated fourth book in the popular (and award-winning) Luke McCain series coming out on July 5th, we're proud to have local author Rob Phillips return to Encore books to meet and greet his fans.
Rob Phillips is an award-winning outdoor writer living in Yakima, Washington. His articles and stories have appeared in dozens of regional and national publications over the years. He has had over 1200 articles and countless photos published since he started writing professionally in 1986. His column, “The Northwest Sportsman” has appeared in the Yakima Herald-Republic almost every week for 29 years
If you haven't read a good book in a while, I highly recommend this series. How local is this author? Let's just say last week I hosted a rotary event and one of the auction items was not only signed copies of his books but they got to name a character in one of his upcoming books! Can you imagine how fun that would be?
Support our local bookstores and our local authors and grab your copy today. Reading is one of the best ways to escape for a bit, shut out the world and dive into a well written story. It helps with your concentration, your vocabulary, your sleep, knowledge and more so what are you waiting for?
