Book Launches

The Cortes Museum supports local writers and published authors by having their works for sale in the Museum Shop.  At the time of publication of their books, the Museum hosts a book launch, either at the Museum, one of the local halls or at the plaza in front of Marnie’s Book Store.  Marnie’s Books is often a co-host of these well attended events.

This year book launches featured Full Moon Lagoon by Monica Nawrocki, July 6,  and  Sea Without Shores by Norm Gibbons, July 28.
