The 2015 Printers Row Festival

printersrowAck! This event is sneaking up on me way too quickly.  Still, I’m excited to be going back to Chicago Tribune’s Printers Row Festival. On Sunday, June 7 from 2-6 p.m. I will once again be under the Chicago Writers Association tent from 2 – 6 p.m. selling copies of my Street Stories novels and meeting other book lovers and authors.

If you are in the area, I hope you will stop by and say hello.  This is going to be a great event with lots of events happening all weekend long.  One of these years I am going to go up for the whole weekend so I can enjoy some of the special speakers instead of just standing behind a table full of my books.

Upcoming Author Events

I’m excited to get spring off to a great start with three Author events scheduled already where I will have an opportunity to meet readers and other authors — and maybe sell a few books, as well.

Box of Rain should be in print by the end of March, so I will have copies of that, too, at these events.

1. March 28, I will be attending the Yorkville Library Author Fair in Yorkville, IL from 9-2

    There will be 21 authors present, with 4 of them doing children’s readings. Amy Logan, Kathy Elstad, Evelyn Sanders Walker, and Elizabeth Wheeler will be reading for approx. 10-15 min each in the children’s programing room starting at 11:00.

There will also be 3 breakout sessions going on during the day.

  • 11:00 – “Taking Recreational Writing to the Next Level” with Jennifer Gulbrandsen
  • 12:00 – “What Makes a Good Mystery – Plot, Place, or People” with Patricia Skalka
  • 1:00 – “Publishing vs. Self-Publishing?  That is the question” with Elizabeth Wheeler and Amy Logan

Fellow local author Tom Schwerbrock will also be attending The Evergreen Library event

2. April 18 I will be in Evergreen Park IL at the Evergreen Park Public Library from 9-3.

    They will also have special sessions:

3. Then on Sunday afternoon, June 7, I will again be present at the Chicago Tribune’s Printers Row Fest at the Chicago Writer’s Association tent.  More info on that when we get closer to the day.
