October 26 & 27: Events in MD & PA

The weekend of October 26-27 will be a whirlwind of events for my wife, Tara Laskowski, and me—traveling first to Maryland and then on to Pennsylvania for events celebrating what’s been a great year professionally, with some specific attention to Tara’s debut novel, One Night Gone.

On Saturday, October 26, the Chesapeake Chapter of Sisters in Crime hosts the first of its annual year-end author showcases—this one at the Miller Branch of the Howard County Library, 9421 Frederick Road, in Ellicott City, Maryland. The program begins at 1 p.m. and features a great group of authors with our chapter—including Donna Andrews, Penny Clifton, Maya Corrigan, Barb Goffman, Sherry Harris, Mary Ellen Hughes, Libby Klein, Maureen Klovers, Sujata Massey, Eileen McIntire, Adam Meyer, Cathy Wiley, Janis Wilson, and Rebecca York, in addition to Tara and me, of course!

After that event, Tara and I will keep heading northward—toward Phoenixville, PA, where our good friend Robb Cadigan has opened the bookstore Reads & Company. Tara is headlining an event there on Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m.—where she’ll talk about One Night Gone in conversation with… me! Reads & Company is at 234 Bridge Street, Phoenixville, PA.

We’re so looking forward to the SinC event and then to seeing Reads & Company in person after having followed the bookstore’s launch and success on social media. Hope to see other friends and fellow writers and readers at both these events as well!
