Five of Vallarta’s best local book authors will get together for a group book signing symposium on Wednesday, April 9th, 2008 from 10:30 am until 12 Noon (Jalisco time) at the NVBookstore, on the 2nd Floor of Paradise Plaza Mall, part of the Paradise Village resort area in Nuevo Vallarta.
This is your chance to meet these interesting people, who live in the Vallarta area and whose talent adds to the vibrant Vallarta culture. Their book subjects are varied, including Vallarta nature, mysteries set in the Vallarta area, memoirs of Puerto Vallarta’s past, as well as inspirational and self-help books. Light refreshments will be provided.
Featured authors include:
Hardin’s first career was in sales; he later earned a law degree and practiced tax law. He eased into retirement, working part time as a factotum in a Sausalito law firm for several years and living on a sailboat in Sausalito harbor. A late-in-life marriage in 2002 brought him back to live on dry land, this time in Sebastopol, CA. When Hardin fully retired at the end of 2004 he and his wife moved to Mexico and are enjoying life in Yelapa, a small remote fishing village south of Puerto Vallarta. Robert now works full time as an author and, just as his mother did, reads mysteries like eating peanuts. Paradise Marred is his fifth novel in the David Armstrong courtroom thriller series.
