If you haven’t quite put your costume together yet, then head to downtown Saguache to the Blue Earth Mercantile and Thrift Store. It’s the perfect place to find all the things you need to get decked to for some spooky fun.

Author Margaret Mizushima

It’s Margaret Mizushima! Did you know that she spent her high school years in Saguache and she is a 1970 graduate from Mountain Valley High School?! Three cheers for the hometown girl! And book reviews indicate that her that first person, small-town-living experience is one of the many reasons her Timber Creek K-9 Mystery Series have been racking up the awards.

Mizushima ‘s books have been finalists in the RT Reviewers’ Choice Awards, the Colorado Book Awards, the International Book Awards, and the Silver Falchion Awards. Most recently, her third book, “Hunting Hour,” has been named as a 2018 Finalist in the Top Shelf Indie Book Awards.

Mizushima ‘s newest release, “Burning Ridge”  is published by Crooked Lane of New York and is the fourth book in the series. This one is set in a small Colorado town (!) where Officer Mattie Cobb and her K-9 partner Robo are the two main characters. So if you like dogs at all, you’ll be pulled in by Robo. Of course, there is a third main character, veterinarian Cole Walker.Burning-Ridge-cover275x407

Join the fun tonight and learn more about Margaret Mizushima, her latest book, and maybe even some of her Saguache memories. This program is brought to you by the Saguache Friends of the Library.

You certainly don’t have to buy anything to attend but in case you’re interested, Margaret will have copies of her books at the library for purchase.  There will be refreshments served! Hope to see you there at 6 p.m. tonight (Friday).
