#RustCity16’s Charity Book Signing will be August 13, 2016 from 2pm – 4pm at the Detroit Marriott Troy (200 W. Big Beaver Rd, Troy, Michigan 48084) and will benefit Child’s Play, specifically Metro Health Hospital in Wyoming, MI and Children’s Hospital Michigan here in Detroit.
Child’s Play seeks to improve the lives of children in hospitals and domestic violence shelters through the generosity and kindness of the video game industry and the power of play.
The signing is a FREE activity, open to the public, however we are asking everyone to bring a gently used book (childrens through adult) to help fill a new #FreeLittleLibrary to be installed within the community after the event. The location of the library, as well as the library itself, will be revealed/displayed during the book signing.
To promote literacy and the love of reading by building free book exchanges worldwide and to build a sense of community as we share skills, creativity and wisdom across generations. There are over 36,000 Free Little Library book exchanges around the world, bringing curbside literacy home and sharing millions of books annually.
Even if you’re unable to be with us for the full weekend, we welcome you to join us in celebrating genre fiction and meet the fabulous authors who write the stories we love to read. Books will be available to purchase on site from Books A Million (Beverly Hills/Southfield), as well as from the authors (title availability and quantities will vary, but please limit books brought from home to 3 total). In addition to the signing, various vendors will also be on hand with their own creative delights.
