Nephilim – Order of Blackthorn Book Signing @ Arts Center of Kankakee County
May 25 @ 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Nephilim - Order of Blackthorn Book Signing @ Arts Center of Kankakee County | Bourbonnais | Illinois | United States

To celebrate the release of the third installment of the Nephilim series, I’ll be at the Arts Center of Kankakee County inside the Northfield Square Mall (1600 Rt 50, Bourbonnais, IL 60914, Suite 466)!

Copies of the first three books to the six-part series will be available. The first ten people to stop by and purchase a copy of any of the books in the Nephilim series will receive a limited edition art print.

The easiest way to reach the Arts Center is to park by the entrance door next to Kansai Japanese Steak House.

New to the Nephilim series by Mandy Madrox?

It all starts with House of Mephisto!

After a car accident that should have taken her life, Raven awakens to a revelation and a peculiar choice that turns her world upside down. She learns that an ongoing war between angels and demons has been playing out for centuries, and the world of man is the battlefield. She is tasked with stopping the archdemon Mephisto’s plans, a task that leads to becoming mixed up with a dangerous cult. But lives are at stake and this ill-prepared hero in the making will have to make sacrifices to get the job done, as a new and unexpected chapter in her life begins.

The events of the Nephilim series take place in Kankakee Illinois and the surrounding area.

Homeschool Used Curriculum Sale @ Dance in the light
May 25 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Come buy or sell used curriculum, educational materials, books, educational games, music, gently used dance wear, gently used martial arts gis, or anything else you would use to educate your child(ren) from home. Please contact Becky Juhl at choc_o_chip@hotmail.com or call or text 815-263-8591 to ask about setting up a table. There are a limited amount of tables available that will be given to the first people who sign up. Once those tables are claimed it’s BYOT (Bring Your Own Table).

This event is also a fundraiser for Fortitude Community Outreach, a local organization that helps the homeless through a street outreach and PADS shelter. When you sign up for a table, you’ll also be asked to give a $10.00 donation for Fortitude.

Josiah’s Bake Sale is also happening during this event. Proceeds from the bake sale are also for Fortitude. Look for information soon about how you can donate baked goods to his sale and help him meet his goal!

This will be a fun afternoon of shopping for the next school year, meeting and mingling with new and old homeschool friends, and supporting Fortitude by buying delicious baked goods.
