I’m happy to announce that my reading and book-signing at the Holland-Alexandria Free Public Library has been rescheduled. I’ll be appearing there on Saturday, March 16, at 1 p.m. I’m looking forward to returning to my old turf in Hunterdon County in western New Jersey — I lived in Alexandria Township for many years and edited the local weekly paper, the now-defunct Delaware Valley News.
Here’s an updated schedule of other scheduled “Rip” readings and book-signings:/em>:
Tuesday, Feb. 19, 7 p.m., Highland Park Public Library, Highland Park, NJ
Saturday, Feb. 23, 1 p.m., Howland Public Library, Beacon, NY
Thursday, April 4, 5 p.m., Port Jervis Free Public Library, Port Jervis NY
Saturday, April 13, 2 p.m., Hunterdon County Library, Raritan Township, NJ
Monday, April 22, 6 p.m., Somers Public Library, Katonah, NY.
At each venue, I’ll read excerpts from my satirical modern-day “retelling” of “Rip Van Winkle,” talk a little about my longtime affection for the works of Washington Irving, answer questions, and sign copies for people who buy the book, which will be available for purchase after the reading. Admission to all events is free.
