On October 3, 2017, Left Bank of the Hudson: Jersey City and the Artists of 111 1st Street, my first book, was published. Officially, I became an author.
Book Culture, a great Manhattan bookstore and a dangerous place for any book lover, hosted the New York release party. I read a passage from my book, talked with the crowd, and signed copies of my book. A dream come true. I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful evening.
The seats quickly filled up, and the night began.
After my talk and a lively discussion, the audience lined up for the book signing. Yes, they wanted to buy my book and ask for my autograph. A real privilege.
I’m thankful and flattered that friends, family, colleagues, and strangers turned out on a weekday night to celebrate the release of my book. I can’t wait to hear what people think.
On Saturday, I’m meeting a Jersey City audience at WORD Bookstore. Then, I’ll head to Western New York and beyond. Ten events. Seven cities. Five states. Two months. A fun autumn. A dream.
