The night's two featured readers will be Asbury Park's Wallace Stroby and yours truly. There are some special guest readers in the works, including Don Lafferty and others whose names will remain secret until the 23rd at 9pm. Wallace is the author of hard-bitten Jersey crime classics like Kings of Midnight, Gone 'Til November and The Barbed Wire Kiss, and his new series featuring tough-as-nails armed robber Crissa Stone is in development at Showtime with Ted Talley, the screenwriter of Silence of the Lambs. Wallace knows crime, having been an editor for thirteen years at the Newark Star-Ledger, Tony Soprano's hometown newspaper.
Come down and join all of us for a great evening of good drinks and great fiction on Thursday, May 23rd. John and Peter's is at 96 South Main Street in New Hope and the event begins at 9:00pm.
