A Great Place to Buy a Book

tgfmThose who can’t wait until my big release party from 2-5 p.m. Sunday Oct. 2 at the Royale on South Kingshighway can buy a copy of The Colorful Characters of St. Louis from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday at The Tower Grove Farmers Market. As long as it’s not raining, I’ll be selling The Colorful Characters and my other books most Saturdays at the market in Tower Grove Park from now until the end of the season on Nov. 12.

Come buy some locally grown produce, some pastries and coffee and one or two of my books. There’s nothing better than Saturday morning in the park.

  1. Will you be at Tower Grove this Saturday? (Sept 24). My daughter and I are up from Florida and would love to meet you?

    Jim: Yes I will, Cheryl. Thanks for your thoughtfulness.
