Some events to add to your calendar.
Come see me tomorrow and say Hi. I’ll be autographing books at the Barnes and Noble Fairlawn store in Montrose (4015 Medina Rd) Friday night, June 19 from 7-8 PM.
Two wine dinners next Thursday night, June 25. Both sound wonderful so choosing will be tough. I’ll give you all the info and mouthwatering menus but you’re on your own deciding which one to attend. If you go to either, please post about your evening here.
