Annual Silver Key Book Fair March 24-26

       There’s a Stephen King, a Carolyn Davidson and several John Grishams. How about these Dr. Seuss books, or one on heart health or cooking?
       The choices go on and on for the annual Silver Key Book Fair March 24-26.
       Jennifer Howard, who is organizing the event with Silver Key staffer Arlinda Thomas, estimated at least 20,000 books will be on sale.
       The sale will be on the third floor of Silver Key Senior Services, 2250 Bott Ave., from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. all three days.
        “We collect books that are donated all year long,” Thomas said, expressing her appreciation to all the donors. “This year there are more than in the past. Sometimes bookstores will donate to us, and then what we do is put great discounts on them.”
        All profits go to benefit Silver Key, a non-profit organization which provides an array of services – including food, transportation and companionship – to nearly 16,000 area elderly.
       Additional discounts are being offered this year for people who buy Silver Key’s own cookbook, which contains recipes from a variety of local people (most notably the executive chef at the Briarhurst).
       Howard, a Michigan resident, comes out every year to help run the fair and visit her sister, Kathleen Silvagni, a Silver Key staffer. For more information on the Book Fair, call 632-1521.
