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.
