December 2, 2009 (El Cajon)-- San Diego’s own book publisher, Sunbelt Publications, whose latest local-interest book is San Diego’s Finest Athletes: Five Exceptional Lives, turns twenty–five years old in December with a wide array of new books for all ages, and a big holiday party. On December 3, 2009, from 4:00 to 8:00 PM, Sunbelt will host their annual Holiday Party, with presentations by local authors, refreshments (including samples from three cookbooks), open warehouse shopping with discounts on books, and prize drawings.


Dr. Jay Vavra of High Tech High (San Diego Bay: A Call for Conservation), Joey Seymour (San Diego's Finest Athletes), and Gary Mitrovich (East of San Diego) will be presenting from 5-7 pm.  The event is free, but please RSVP—everyone is welcome to attend.

Back in December of 1984, desert buff and author Diana Lindsay put a couple boxes of books into her VW Vanagon and headed up to Julian to see if she could distribute her two desert books and a handful of other publishers’ titles. Frustrated by the problem of distribution of their own natural history and guide books, Diana and her husband, author Lowell Lindsay, had decided to become specialty distributors themselves, with a publishing program that would feed into that system.

Twenty-five years later, Sunbelt is an award-winning publisher and book distributor with hundreds of books in print, and thousands of books in their vast El Cajon warehouse, many of them regional titles—travel, recreation, cookbooks, bilingual, and children’s books.

Come visit Sunbelt for the holiday party and sample dishes and drinks from their three new cookbooks: Flying Pans by renowned local chefs Bernard Guillen and Ron Oliver of Marine Room fame, Cicciotti’s Kitchen, and Cooking with Baja Magic Dos by Baja writer Ann Hazard.


WHAT: Sunbelt’s Annual Holiday Party (Author presentations, free prizes, food and drink)
WHEN: December 3, 2009 from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM
