The Shut Mouth Society at the Kentucky Book Fair

I'm pleased to have been invited to participate in the Kentucky Book Fair.

The central purpose of the Kentucky Book Fair is to bring writers and patrons together in celebration of their mutual interest and to promote awareness of the importance of writing and reading. The Book Fair uses proceeds from the Fair to benefit causes associated with the promotion of reading and writing.

The Kentucky Book Fair, now in its 27th year, is a one-day event, held this year on Saturday, November 15, 2008. The event takes place in Frankfort, the state’s Capitol City. The focus of the 2008 Kentucky Book Fair will be Abraham Lincoln because his bicentennial occurs on February 12, 2009 and Kentucky was the state of his birth.

Although the invitation was based on The Shut Mouth Society, I'll be signing all my books. Over two hundred authors are confirmed, so this is going to be a large and exciting event. If you like to talk to authors or other people interested in writing, this is going to be a great place to meet people.

I hope you can make it.


  1. Look forward to seeing you at the Book Fair. I'm also be there signing copies of "Legends of the Chelsea Hotel: Living with the Artists and Outlaws of New York's Rebel Mecca."

  2. I'll be sure to stop by your table. I want to get a copy of "Legends of the Chelsea Hotel" for my son for Christmas. He lives in NYC and loves books about the city's history.

  3. I found your novel (THE SHUT MOUTH SOCIETY) a major disappointment. It started so well, but suddenly, near the end, morphed into just another "Yankee Saint, Southern Sinner" diatribe. Shame on you; doubly so if you are from the South.
