Briefs: Book fair at La Entrda

More then 6,000 books have been donated and will be on sale during the La Entrada Used Book Fair, open to the community from Tuesday, Nov. 12, through Friday, Nov. 15.

The hours are 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the middle school's multi-use room, across from the school office, at 2200 Sharon Road in Menlo Park.

There will be children's picture books, board books, books for young readers and teens, adult fiction, science fiction, mysteries and cookbooks.

Most are priced from $1 to $5. Cash and checks only are accepted. All proceeds go to the PTA.

Mitch Albom

Mitch Albom, author of such bestsellers as "Tuesdays with Morrie," will talk about his new book, "The First Phone Call from Heaven," at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20, at Kepler's Books, 1010 El Camino Real in Menlo Park.

It's a story of a small Midwestern town whose residents begin to get phone calls from the departed. The book is described as "equal parts mystery, love story, and an allegory about the power of belief."

Tickets at $40 cover one copy of the book and premium seating. General seating at $20 does not include the book. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
