LOSING TOUCH, now available at Barnes & Noble.

I will be answering questions about LOSING TOUCH at the Winter Writer’s Day hosted by Barnes & Noble in Racine on February 22, after which Racine’s poet laureate, Nick Ramsey, will conduct a writer’s workshop, providing his unique perspective on where creativity can take your career.

The Carthage College graduate is a hip-hop artist who delves into all aspects of emceeing from poetry and spoken word to freestyle and show hosting. His influences include Notorious B.I.G, Big L, Big Pun, Slick Rick, Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap, Rakim, R.A. The Rugged Man, Wu-Tang, Jurassic 5, Eminem, and Canibus.

From 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., children’s authors will present their titles and interact with the kiddos and their parents. Participating authors include Karen Franco (JUST HOLD MY HAND), Janet Halfmann (STAR OF THE SEA), C. Hill (the ABBY BOO workbook series), and Norma Lundstrum (THE CHUBBY GIRL).

From 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., I will be part of the adult author panel that will include:

From 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., Ramsey will conduct the writer’s workshop, and from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m., stay for the open house, during which time the authors will be available to chat and sign copies of their books.
