Valley Stream, NY - September 6th, 2013 - Long Island Authors and Writers Society will hold a book signing for several of their author members, Saturday, September 21 from 7:00 PM until 8:30 PM at Sip This Coffeehouse, 64 Rockaway Avenue, Valley Stream NY 11580. On hand will be fiction, non-fiction, and children's book authors including: Yvonne Capitelli, Rich Harwood, Robert Bennett, Ben Baglio, Russell Cera, John Peter Ferris, Paula Groothuis, and others. We're hoping you can stop by to support this event.

"Good coffee and good books are a natural fit," says LIAWS president, Tom Gahan. "Many novels have been inspired in coffee houses, and fueled by caffeine. This is a chance for readers to meet the people behind the story."
"It's always a pleasure to meet avid readers," says author Rich Harwood. "I enjoy the opportunity to help our veterans through my book events." Harwood donates a portion of the proceeds from his new release, The Red Warrior, to Suffolk County United Veterans, a non-profit organization serving disabled veterans.

Sip This Coffeehouse offers eclectic seating and surroundings. They serve a variety of coffee drinks and desserts. Sip This hosts various events, supports and works with other area businesses, and creates opportunities for community involvement.
