The mood may be a little bit romantic at Black Bear Books next week, when Creston romance author Susan Lohrer officially launches her first two novels, Rocky Road and Over the Edge.
The event will include a reading by the author. There will be treats, too — brownies, specifically, baked by Black Bear Books owner Paula Carpenter, because they are featured in a funny and romantic way in one of Lohrer’s romantic comedy books.
“The brownies didn’t turn out so well in the book, but I’m sure Paula’s will turn out fine,” said Lohrer with a laugh.
The launch will run 7-9 p.m. Nov. 7.
