Of dogs and ponies

The beginning of my author "tour" for Hang Fire is quickly coming up. With the help of the Lady Friend, who'll be reading passages from the novel, I'll make my pitch using a digital projector and Keynote, the Mac version of PowerPoint, at these Chicago-area venues:

Saturday, May 4, 2 p.m., Evanston Public Library North Branch, 2026 Central St., Evanston, Ill.

Sunday, May 5, 2 p.m., Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore, 7419 W. Madison, Forest Park, Ill.

Wednesday, May 8, 7 p.m. Evanston Public Library Chicago and Main Branch, 900 Chicago Ave., Evanston, Ill.

The two Evanston appearances are fundraisers sponsored by the Evanston Public Library Friends.

In the works are presentations and signings this summer in a number of venues in western Upper Michigan, where the novels are set.


  1. Henry - in Evanston, will books be available for purchase (and autographing)? When you say "fundraisers" for the EPL, how does that work? Where do they get their money from?

  2. Mike:

    Yes, books will be available for purchase at $25.95 each. The Friends of the Evanston Public Library have bought a bunch for sale at the presentations, and all proceeds will go to the library (for, I think, funding the new Chicago and Main branch).
