Meet Drew

"I've been working for Half Price Books since 2006. I work here because I really do believe in the company's mission statement, and my goal is to promote literacy, be kind to the environment, be fair to customers and employees and do so in a way that is financially viable. I love being surrounded by a huge variety of books and media, and I enjoy working with and around people who are like-minded in this respect."

Your North Lamar HPB is the contest host for food entries on Sunday, April 1, from 6 to 8 p.m. All edible books must be "bookish" through the integration of text, literary inspiration or, quite simply, the form. Prizes awarded for Funniest, Most Appetizing, Least Appetizing, Best Construction and Best in Show. What better time than April Fool's Day to eat your words? The festival is a food drive for Central Texas Food Bank, too, so bring something non-perishable to donate. See Facebook Event for details.
