I’m delighted to be speaking and signing books this coming Saturday, March 15 – oh, those Ides! – at the Ruth B. Shannon Center for the Performing Arts Bookfaire at Whittier College. I hope you can join me!

Besides being, with the assassination of Caesar, the defining moment of the transition from the Roman Republic to the Empire, the Ides of March were celebrated in ancient days with the Feast of Anna Perenna, a celebration of wine, women…and wine and women. I can’t promise you THAT sort of revelry, but there’s sure to be laughter, joy, and perhaps even a ditty or two as seven of us authors regale you with riotous readings and tantalizing tales from the front lines of fiction and non-fiction. 

I’ve got all the information right here, so no excuses ~  shake a leg and shake your groove thing down to the campus, where Fleur might even share a little skip with you across the sunny quad.
