Cougar Shoppe Moves to Riverpoint Campus;
Authors to Sign Books

SPOKANE, Wash. -- The Students Book Corporation store currently located at the downtown campus of WSU Spokane will move to new quarters in the former
F.O. Berg building at 410 E. Trent, on the south side of the Riverpoint campus.

The grand opening, scheduled for Dec. 9-10, will feature drawings for prizes, refreshments and book signings by WSU Press authors.

In its downtown location of 950 square feet, the shop has always carried Cougar memorabilia and textbooks for students at WSU Spokane and the Intercollegiate Center for Nursing Education/WSU College of Nursing. Additional features of the expanded 5,400-square-foot location include a medical reference area, a lounge area with television, snacks and coffee, and computer stations and study area.

Jerry Hands, ASWSU Spokane president, says, "We're really excited about the new space and its proximity to the Riverpoint campus. Free parking and more space should draw lots of business from an increasing number of students as well as the Spokane community."

Events on the book signing schedule are:

--David Neiwert, "In God's Country: The Patriot Movement in the Pacific
   Northwest," Dec. 9, 12 noon-2 p.m.

--Derek Sparks, "Lessons of the Game," Dec. 9, 3-5 p.m.

--William Stimson, "Spokane: A View of the Falls," Dec. 10, 3-5:30 p.m.

--Alice Koskela, "The Pull of Moving Water," Dec. 10, 4-6 p.m.
