Meet the Authors

library This Saturday, Sept. 27, you can immerse yourself in the lives of eight  local authors – including myself – at the Third Annual Author Breakfast of the Carondelet  Branch of the St. Louis Public Library 6800 Michigan Avenue.

You can enjoy a light breakfast with Jennifer Adele, Laura Benedict, Heather Brewer, John Dalton, Irene Hannon, Judy Morosi, John F.D. Taff, and myself. I’m honored the library included me in their list.  Check-in is at 9:15 a.m, and the event starts promptly at 9:30 a.m. Each author will spend 15 minutes chatting at each table.

It should be great, but you gotta register. No exceptions. Call 314-752-9224 to sign up.

Books will be available for purchase for all the authors, including myself.
