I’m excited to be starting out the summer with a bang. First off, on Memorial Day weekend, I gave a party to celebrate my Mom’s 80th birthday and the engagement of my son to a wonderful woman. Then, before I could even catch my breath, I started preparing for my first author event of the season, The Writer’s Yarn Author Fair at the Dekalb library. I will be there all day Saturday May 31 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
That will be a great venue to practice my social skills so I am ready to attend the 30th annual Printers Row Lit Fest in Chicago. The festival with be going on all day Saturday June 7 and Sunday, June 8, but if you want to catch me there, shoot for 2-6 p.m. on Saturday. The Chicago Writer’s Association will have its own tent (Tent F). Over 46 authors will be attending that weekend from the CWA alone, so you will have lots of opportunities to buy books and meet authors.
For this event, I will be donating $10 per every hard copy sold of my Street Stories novels to The Night Ministry as a show of appreciation for the work they are doing and the way they inspired me to highlight homeless characters and their lives in the series.
So what’s going on for your summer? Got time to come and share some of mine? I’d love to see you, both old friends and new. Whatever the months have in store for you, I hope you enjoy them as much as I am going to enjoy mine.
