Author Jill Rohrbach this week will celebrate the release of her new book, “100 Things to Do in Fayetteville Before You Die,” with a launch party event set for 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 21, at Pearl’s Books.

Rohrbach, who has lived in Fayetteville for more than 30 years, said she was approached to do the book by Reedy Press, a St. Louis-based publisher that has published a series of “100 Things” books on a host of cities around the country.
