Author Nancy Christie believes in giving back to her community. She will be signing copies of her recently published short fiction collection, Traveling Left of Center and Other Stories(Pixel Hall Press) at The Learned Owl Book Shop, 204 N. Main Street, Hudson, Ohio on Friday, November 28 from 1 to 3 PM. As part of the event, Christie also will be personally donating $1 for every book sold during the event to the Hudson Food Pantry operated by the Hudson Community Service Organization.
Christie explained, “'Traveling Left of Center and Other Stories' is, for the most part, about people who are hungry for something in their lives—love, security, safety, forgiveness, release. And while the Hudson Food Pantry provides food to those who are physically hungry, the act of giving nourishment also mitigates the emotional lack experienced by those in need. It was a natural tie-in for me to donate to this organization, as well as a way for me to show my appreciation to The Learned Owl for giving me the opportunity to share my book with the community.”
Christie’s first book, The Gifts of Change, will also be available for sale at The Learned Owl.

About Pixel Hall Press
Pixel Hall Press is a relatively new, old-fashioned small publishing house whose focus is on discovering literary gems and great stories that might otherwise be overlooked. Our mission is to publish books that energize the imagination and intrigue the mind, and to be a conduit between readers and provocative, stimulating, talented authors.
In this era of digital technology, Wall Street involvement and merger mania, many mainstream publishers seem to have lost sight of core principles and the purpose of publishing. At the other end of the spectrum is the veritable avalanche of self-published books that are notoriously uneven in quality. Small boutique imprints like Pixel Hall Press are reclaiming the heart and soul of publishing by reviving the idea that a publisher's raison d'être is finding and nurturing great writers, and to provide readers with beautiful, meaningful, truly enjoyable books.
