The old Borders Books on Prince William Parkway in Woodbridge is now 2nd and Charles books.

WOODBRIDGE, Va. – Katherine Mercurio Gotthardt and Marvin Josaitis, PhD, are autographing their recently published books at the 2nd and Charles Bookstore  in Woodbridge on Shoppers Best Way – 2904 Prince William Parkway this Saturday, June 30, from 1-4 p.m.

Mercurio Gotthardt acclaimed first novel, “Approaching Felonias Park,” is a fast paced and gritty read, exploring intimately the lives of the needy in a world of predatory lending. A gifted writer, Mercurio Gotthardt also will have available her outstanding “Poems from the Battlefield” as well as “Furbily-Furld Takes on the World,” a charming and magical children’s book. Sales of Katherine’s works will benefit local food pantries.

Josaitis’ two non-fiction books were each recognized in two prestigious international book festivals. “Pennies From a Heav’n” (The Joy of Making Family) – a very creative autobiography – won honorable mention in the May, 2012, Paris Book Festival and “Breaking Grand Silence” (A Former Catholic Priest Speaks Out) won honorable mention in the June, 2012, New York Book Festival.

These two Prince William County authors each grew up in working class families in different parts of the country. Their writings carefully craft passion with purpose and meaning. Their insights address and challenge the reader’s whetted appetite for current concerns and issues within contemporary society.
