My Busy Week

I'm on the road yet again. I don't know why I'm so busy these days, but I am. Even so, I'm making a couple of public appearances in passing. So, if you're in the Washington, DC or Norristown, PA area, and you've got the free time, why not drop by and say hello?

Very quickly, very briefly . . .

Can Science Fiction Save the World?

Tough question. The short answer is: It never has before. But that's also the theme of an appearance and book-signing in D.C. tomorrow and I'm going to be there.

Here are the details:

June 3, 7 P.M. SF writers, including Arlan Andrews, John G. Hemry and Michael Swanwick, discuss how science fiction can help defend the nation at Reiter's Scientific & Professional Books, 1990 K St. NW, 202-223-3327.

Can Libraries Make the World a Better Place?

This question, on the other hand, is almost too easy. They already have.

As a case in point, the Montgomery County-Norristown Public Library (1001 Powell St., Norristown) is hosting Author, Author, a cocktail reception, from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 5.

If you're in the area, this is your chance for hors d'oeuvres, wine, and the chance to make small talk with various regional authors. In addition to yours truly, there will also be such luminaries as Karen Abbott, Charles Adams, Bette Banjack, Robert Bell, Cordelia Frances Biddle, Nero Blanc, Bob Bloss, Michael Bono, Bernard Chavis, Mindy Starns Clark, Matt Cubbler, Ray Didinger, Robin Hathaway, Mary Hennessy, William C. Kashatus, Mary Lamba, Maryann F. Lenzi, Adam Levine, Ed Quigley, Elena Santangelo, Shane Simon, Joe Sindoni, Judith Skillings, Sheilah Vance, Hanna Kalter Weiss and Steve Zettler.

If you want to attend, you should call 610-278-5100, ext. 140, to make sure there are still openings.
