Thanks to SIBA's Inkreadible sponsors:

Congratulations to Fountain Bookstore, Richmond, Va., managed by Kelly Justice, which has won Unbridled Books's display contest for two books by Lamar Herrin: House of the Deaf, a novel, and Romancing Spain, a memoir. Fountain wins a dinner for two at a Spanish or tapas restaurant.

House of the Deaf is about an American father searching for answers after his daughter is accidentally killed by Basque separatists while studying abroad. Romancing Spain describes how the author met his Spanish wife more than 30 years ago and struggled against custom, church objections and bureaucracy to marry her. It's also the story of his love affair with Spain itself and his recent journey back with his wife to search for the perfect pueblo in which to retire.
