But these programs are not free for us to put on! If you’re interested in attending this event, we hope you’ll consider purchasing a copy of You Brought Me the Ocean from our bookshop. —if you do, we'll include a bookplate signed by the author for you to place in your book! It's our way of saying "thanks." Your support is critical to keeping us here and offering events like this, and we hope to do that for many years to come!
