Saturday, February 4 at 4pm: Barnes and Noble located at Christiana Mall, 350 Christiana Mall in Newark
As Good As She Imagined is Roxanna’s personal account of her daughter’s life detailing the events leading up to the January 8, 2011 tragic shooting in Arizona that would take Christina-Taylor’s life as well as the lives of five others and gravely injure Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and 13 others. With the help of best-selling author Jerry B. Jenkins, Roxanna shares her family’s journey of faith during a time of unspeakable tragedy.
Some of the proceeds from the book benefit the Christina-Taylor Green Memorial Foundation, established to honor the life and memory of Roxanna and John Green’s daughter through charitable and educational projects that reflect and embody her interests, values and dreams. The Foundation will be issuing a call for Grant Proposals in the spring of 2012. The goal is to give out approximately $100,000 in grant money for multiple small projects.
