In celebration of the recent release of The Lace Reader in paperback, The Salem Inn and the Hawthorne Hotel are both doing "pillow drops" of copies of the book this weekend!
This means lucky guests of the Inn and the Hotel will have a present on their pillow - theirs to keep - from Harper Collins publishing.
The Lace Reader, written by Salem resident Brunonia Barry, made its debut in June 2008. It has been extremely well received internationally, and we are all excited about the paperback.
The Hawthorne Hotel is actually mentioned in the book, in passing, by protagonist Towner Whitney. Towner takes time to mention many of Salem's beloved destinations, and they are all featured on The Lace Reader Walking Map of Salem, which you can pick up in Salem or download from Salem.org.
There are many ways to create your own story from The Lace Reader in Salem - have your lace read at Artemisia Botanicals, take a Lace Reader tour with Historic Salem Pedicab Tours, go on The Lace Reader Tour created by The House of the Seven Gables aboard The Salem Trolley.
If you're not lucky enough to get a copy of the book on your pillow tonight, stop by Cornerstone Books in Salem and grab your own copy!
