Come on down to Duluth's Canal Park by beautiful Lake Superior on Saturday, July 11. I'll be at Northern Lights Books and Gifts signing books from 2-3 pm. Tell your friends and stop by...and, of course, buy a book! Yes, Northern Lights is the very same bookseller that recently hosted the Duluth stopping point for the David Sedaris National Book Tour.
It's shameless promoting, I know... but I have all these books to sell. My book, Cooler Near the Lake, is for sale in all the area book stores and gift shops and on line through Adventure Publication and Amazon. You can even buy the book by contacting me! (See my web site by clicking on the book cover located on this blog.) The book retails for just $14.95 and is filled with a special selection of 52 of my Duluth News Tribune columns printed over 34 years.
I've divided the book into sections covering life in the northland (The Lake Effect), my own unique perspectives (Outrageous Nonsense), serious thoughts on life (Slices of Life), northern ethnic humor (The Ethnic Editor), famous people visiting Duluth (The Rich and Famous Collide With Duluth) and philosophical and fun perspectives while looking back in time (Through the Rearview Mirror). It's the kind of book you can give as a gift, read yourself or have conveniently situated in a favorite reading room.
I'm taking a bit of vacation time next week... but stay tuned, I'll be back soon!
