TOM ROBBINS WILL BE KING FOR A DAY - A lifetime of words and a longtime La Conner address combine for a townwide celebration Sept. 2 for author Tom Robbins. Gina McCarthy, above, is chief planner, if not court jester. She exhibits some of the novels she has read.

La Conner is taking a novel approach when it comes to celebrating the best things in life.

The town will be the scene for "Tom Robbins Day" Sept. 2, an event designed to promote fun, friendship, wit, whimsy and positive vibes, all reflective of themes and characters in books penned by La Conner's famed best-selling author.
