APPEARANCES -- Sunday Update


I'll be beating the drums for the next two weeks about my appearance at The Spiral Bookcase in Manayunk.  There are three reasons for this:  First, The Spiral Bookcase is an independent bookstore, and independent bookstores are to be cherished and encouraged.  Second, it's a relatively new bookstore (it just celebrated its first anniversary) so it can use all the attention it can get.  And third, it's a very nifty bookstore, which means that it's the kind of place I want to keep in my neighborhood.

So if you live in the Philadelphia area and you have that Saturday afternoon free . . . why not drop by?  The world needs good bookstores.

You can check out their website here.

Here's the basic info:

When: Saturday, 9/10, 3pm-5pm
Where: The Spiral Bookcase, 112 Cotton St. (right off Main St.), Manayunk, PA 19127

And, oh yeah, the basic schedule . . .

You'' note that, along with the days, my schedule is getting shorter.  That's because the publicity cycle for Dancing With Bears is drawing to a close.  Soon I will retreat to my cave and do nothing but work on the next novel.  Such is the cycle of life.

Sept. 10           The Spiral Bookcase (signing)

Above:  On the way back from Berlin, Nevada, the Diane Mine, and the Shonisaurus display, we ran across another shoe tree.  People need superstitions and this seems to be a harmless one.
