August 2021 - event to introduce Chevy Mize's book, Tobias

An event was held in the "front yard" of the Bilbo Books office to introduce Tobias by Chevy Mize, and to allow fans to grab some "Tobias merchandise."

We're excited about the book, and we're thrilled to have the opportunity, after what seems like an eternity, to arrange outdoor events with our authors.

a perfect day for a book event

May 2020 - Pandemic Poetry

Alice Mohor shared her latest poem...

new normal

my life now has
a varied flow
since home away
from those i know

safe distancing
my new routine
with surfaces
kept very clean

i feel compelled
at every turn
hand washing is
a great concern

and wear a mask
when i go out
though mostly i
just lay about

As one of the many multi-talented authors we work with, Alice also shared some videos she created for her church. For something completely different, see what Alice is up to when she's not writing poetry... but be ready to dance!
