North Coast Writers Showcase

posted on April 25, 2018

The road continues to wind through visits to the Dover Public Library in Dover, OH tomorrow night at 6:30 and the Northcoast Writer’s Showcase all day Saturday at Lake Erie College in Painesville, OH. As always, complete info is available at the Events section of this site. This is a good chance to fill in the holes in your Funky collection with signed copies by yours truly. As the sign atop the comic spinner racks of my youth used to proclaim: “Hey, Kids, Comics!!!”

I’d like to send a shoutout to the Ohioana Book Festival for the great job they did this past Saturday. They always make it a great experience for the authors and draw large crowds. It’a a great way to spend a Saturday. The roadshow continues this month with two talk/signings next week. On Thursday April 28 I’ll be at the Dover, OH public Library at 6:30, and on Saturday April 28 at the North Coast Writers at Lake Erie College in Painesville. Hope to see you there.
