Books and a Book Expo…

I’m preparing for the first southwest Indiana book expo. If you’re in the Tri-State area, drop by the Scales Lake Pavilion at Boonville on Saturday, April 1, from 10AM – 4PM. I’ll have six of my current book titles available for purchase, and I’d love to see you there.

Clickable map of Scales Lake at Boonville. The official park website (there’s a $2.00/car admission charge; see site for annual pass prices).
