Hope you already have marked your calendar for the July Bee Book Club this Thursday at 6 p.m. at Borders on Fair Oaks Boulevard. Dorthea Benton Frank is bringing her South Carolina charm to Sacramento for a combination reading, talk and book signing. Benton's book is "Folly Beach" and it's definitely a great summer read.
Also in July, The Bee will be in full force at the State Fair, which opens Thursday and runs through July 31. Come stop by The Bee booth and meet the people who bring you the paper, including our mascot "Scoopy."
And lastly, we scored a major personality for our September Book Club. He's not so much an author as he is a cartoonist and he is Stephan Pastis, the creator of "Pearls Before Swine." Come see Stephan Pastis on Thursday, Sept. 15, at 6 p.m. at Borders Books. Watch The Bee for more info.
