Author presentation planned at downtown store

A series of events featuring local authors will continue with a presentation scheduled for 11 a.m. Nov. 9 at Crystal Books and Gifts, 439 Main St. in downtown Grand Junction.

The Off the Shelf event will feature Sally Crum, a local author whose latest children’s book is titled “The Night the Stars Fell.”

The book of rhymes brings to life the annual Leonid meteor shower as it was seen in 1883 in one of the most spectacular celestial sights recorded in human history. The book features the whimsical illustrations of Eric Carlson.

Crum will be joined by Danny Rosen, another Grand Valley author and astronomer, who will offer information about the upcoming Leonid meteor shower.
