Word Wise presents
featuring Bruce Allen Kopytek
If you enjoyed shopping at Jacobson’s or savored the exhilaration of receiving a gift in the silver box at Christmas, birthdays or other occasions, then you won’t want to miss this special tea. Bruce Allen Kopytek, author of Jacobson’s, I Miss It So, is coming to JDL on Saturday, June 23, at 2:00 p.m. for an afternoon tea, book talk and signing. The event will be held in the Carnegie’s Clare H. Sergeant Auditorium.
The second book from Deborah Harkness' pen is as action-filled as the first, A Discovery of Witches. Shadow of Night adds the excitement, danger, and intrigue of a trip back to the political upheaval and superstition of 16th century Europe.
After finishing the second Inspector Kaldis book while on vacation Memorial Day, I was really glad to write a review. The books are short but packed with lots of color, and the colors are bright Aegean blue and blinding cloud white and dusty hillside tan. Oh, and blood red, dark as night, with occasional flashes of lurid orange.
The Jane Austen Book club is reading Margaret Maron this year. She's a North Carolina native whose first novel, "Bootlegger's Daughter" won every major mystery award for best first novel. That book was the first to feature Deborah Knott, whose colorful Daddy was a bootlegger. Deborah is an attorney who decides to take a stand against "mean-minded judicial pettiness" and take on the Old Boy's Club by running for a retiring judge's seat.
