ROGER ROFFMAN, DEC. 13, 2 P.M., "MARIJUANA NATION"
Roger Roffman first discovered marijuana while serving as a U.S. Army officer in Vietnam. From these seemingly innocuous beginnings, Roffman has been fascinated by marijuana, as a researcher, scholar, therapist, activist, and user. Ever since America’s youth first marched in opposition to the war in Vietnam, pot’s popularity has periodically ebbed and surged. Calls for greater, fewer, or no marijuana penalties also have swung on their own pendulum.
From lobbying in Washington, to talking to doctors and nurses in oncology wards, and watching his brother struggle with addiction, Roffman has experienced the layered and complex relationship Americans have with marijuana first-hand. With one foot on each side of the fence, at times feeling at odds with both camps, Roffman is on a quest to challenge those who insist we think of marijuana as a weapon of mass destruction, as well as those who would have us see it as a harmless source of pleasure and relief.
Roffman, a professor emeritus in social work at the University of Washington, will be at Page 2 to discuss his book and sign copies.
VIRGINIA H. WRIGHT, "BURIEN, " DEC. 20, 2 P.M.

Wright of Phoenix Tea in Olde Burien. She has lived in the Three Tree Point neighborhood of Burien since 1996, enabling her to see Burien grow and change.

PAGE 2 IS NOW OFFICIALLY THE PLACE FOR ROMANCE (BOOKS)
The Greater Seattle Romance Writers of America, at the group’s recent Emerald City Writers’ Confe-ence, has named Page 2 the bookstore of the year. Page 2’s Jenny Cole was on hand at the conference in Bellevue to accept the award and to invite authors to introduce themselves and their books to readers at our store. Our thanks to the association, and the Page 2 customer who nominated us, for this recognition.
HOLD ON TO YOUR USED BOOKS
Because of the expected crush of activity between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, Page 2 Books won’t be taking in used books for store credit during that period. We will resume after Jan. 1, so if you’ve got some you’d like to bring in, do it now, or wait until after the holidays. And rest assured, your accumu-lated store credit is still valid toward the purchase of used books all during the holiday shopping season.
