Two upcoming booksignings in POTTSTOWN

*On Saturday, Jan. 22, authors Sandy Elliott Swann and Susan Swann McKain will be signing their children’s book, “Tugger the Pretzel Pup,” at the First United Methodist Church bookstore, 414 E. High St., Pottstown, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The authors will do a reading at 11 a.m., followed by an appearance of Tugger, the Irish terrier star of the book.

Books purchased that day will be signed by the authors and proceeds will be donated to the church. Soup and sandwiches will be available for purchase starting at 11:30 a.m. The bookstore hours are 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays.
