To be precise, neither Historic Smithville nor Brooklyn are cities, but you have to take certain liberties when you’re crafting headlines. I have two upcoming book events and they are a study in contrast.
On Saturday, September 13, I will sign books at Authors on the Greene, on the Village Greene in Smithville.
Historic Smithville is a quaint shopping village in south Jersey, not far from Atlantic City, and yet a world apart. On Saturday, some 50 NJ authors will set up tables on the green and, hopefully, will sell a lot of books. This year will be my third appearance at Authors on the Greene. It is always fun, chatting with readers and writers alike, catching up with old friends and making a few new friends. I hope you’ll come by and say hello. And while you’re there, stop in at Through the Looking Glass, the tea shoppe which sponsors Authors on the Greene.
And then, on Sunday September 21, I’ll be signing books at the Brooklyn Book Festival.Brooklyn is certainly historic, and you might even be inclined to call some neighborhoods quaint, but it would never be mistaken for Smithville. And the Book Festival is a wee bit larger than Authors on the Greene, with events occurring on thirteen separate stages, hundreds authors and exhibitors and tens of thousands of readers. You’ll find me hanging out with the mystery writers.
