April may be the cruelest month, but for us, October seems to be the busiest. Saturday, October 5, was my wife Tara’s book launch at One More Page Books for her debut novel, One Night Gone, with another event Monday, October 7, at Politics and Prose in DC. She’ll also be at Fall for the Book at George Mason University on Friday, October 11, and then heading for her hometown for an event at the Barnes & Noble in Wilkes-Barre, PA on Saturday, October 12. Whew! (You can find more details at Tara’s events page here.)
Meanwhile, I’ve got a couple of events on the near horizon too this week (which sadly means I’ll be missing a trip to PA for the partying there).
Saturday morning, October 12, I’ll be at Fall for the Book for an event in conversation with Sarah Weinman, author of The Real Lolita—with GMU-TV filming for broadcast later. Then that evening, I’ll be one of eight readers at the 10th (milestone!) DC Noir at the Bar—along with Kathleen Barber, John Copenhaver, James Grady, Cheryl Head, Alan Orloff, David Swinson, and Erica Wright, and hosted by Ed Aymar.
Details on each event are below. Hope to see folks there!
