Events next Saturday.


On Saturday the 21st of November I'll be at Farley's Bookshop in New Hope, PA. I'll be signing books and haranguing passersby from 1:00 to 4:00pm.

Farley's is a great place, crammed to the rafters with books. It's exactly the kind of store that shows off why independent bookstores are so important and such a great antidote to the chains. They're great supporters of local writers, and the people are there because they genuinely love books. I never walk out of the place without a new book.

Date: Saturday, November 21, 2009
Time: 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Location: Farley's Bookshop
Street: 44 S. Main Street
City/Town: New Hope, PA

Come on down!

Free Kids Workshop at Moonstone Arts Center

I'll be teaching a free workshop for the Spells Writing Center in Philadelphia on Saturday:

Mysteries Revealed!
Sat, November 14, 2009
2:00–3:30 p.m.
Moonstone Arts Center (formerly Robin’s Bookstore)
110A S. 13th Street, Philadelphia
Taught by Dennis Tafoya
Ages 8+

Taking inspiration from the award-winning children’s book Mysteries of Harris Burdick by Chris Van Allsburg, we’ll write our own strange and funny story books. Van Allsburg couples illustrations with a single caption, leaving the reader to ponder the rest of the story behind the picture. Whether you’re inspired by one of Van Allsburg’s pictures and want to expand on it, or you prefer to create a mysterious set of your own pictures and captions, come prepared to think, laugh, and write, write, write!

*Space is limited! Call 267-670-0869 or email write@phillyspells.org to reserve your spot now.*

Liars Club at Womrath Books in Tenafly

Good rats,

(I had to drop out of this event today because of a cold, but everyone should still go and meet the other amazing writers and talents of the Liars Club)

This Saturday, November 7th, the Liars Club is hosting the 60th Anniversary Bash at Womrath's in Tenafly from noon-3 p.m.

The event is free, but a portion of the proceeds from the day's book sales will be donated to the Sergeant Harry Fund in honor of the store's founder, Sergeant Harry Kutik! So not only will you be supporting a great indie bookstore, but you'll also be helping disabled veterans achieve a better life. More info is at www.sgtharry.org.

The Liars will be bringing trivia contests, giveaways and prizes including copies of our books and cool Liars Club totebags. I'm also reliably informed that there will be cake!

Womrath's is at 12 Washington Street / Tenafly, NJ 07670 / Phone: 201-568-8857.
