Celebrating the life of her daughter, Roxanna Green will share Christina-Taylor's inspiring story and sign copies of "As Good As She Imagined," the newly released book at two local book-signing events this month.

The second signing will be held at Barnes and noble in the Foothills Mall, at 7325 N. LaCholla Blvd. Ste 100., on Saturday, Jan. 21 at 3 p.m.

"As Good As She Imagined," is Roxanna's personal account of her daughter's inspiring story, detailing the events leading up to the Jan. 8, 2011 tragic shooting that would take Christina-Taylor's life and its aftermath experienced nationwide.

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 $50,000 in grant money for multiple small projects.
