AROUND TOWN: What You Don't Know About Book Tours

I'm excited that my "global book tour" for my new short story collection, "What You Don't Know About Men," gets rolling in September with two readings and a college class lecture. On September 11, I'll be joining some terrific authors -- Patricia Ann McNair, Megan Stielstra and Geoff Hyatt -- at The Chicago Way reading series curated by Julia Borcherts. The festivities get underway at 7 p.m., at The Hidden Shamrock, Lincoln Park's oldest Irish Pub, located at 2723 N. Halsted in Chicago. Plus, on the Saturday afternoon before, I'll be participating in a Book Fair benefiting the In Print writers group at the Barnes & Noble at Cherryvale Mall in beautiful Rockford, Illinois. My panel and book signing is scheduled for 1-3:30 pm on September 10. The college class lecture is a private discussion at College of DuPage. All of this comes in the wake of the terrific book party we held recently at the Edgewater Beach Cafe. I am still overwhelmed that 72 guests joined us for that event. (Here's a photo of me with the party's emcee, my dear friend and fellow author, Ed Underhill.)
