For schools in Northern Virginia and several East Coast cities, the Tuesday after Labor Day is still the first day of the new school year just as it was when I was a kid going to elementary, middle school, and high school. So my 15-year old granddaughter Natale will start her sophomore year of high school and my newly-turned 6-year old granddaughter AnaSofia will start Kindergarden. And. . .she will even get to ride the school bus! Pretty exciting stuff for a six-year old. I'll look forward to hearing some Kindergarden experiences.
And I'm looking forward to meeting people at my upcoming Book Events this week in Northern Virginia:
1---I'll be discussing & signing the second in the Molly Malone Suspense trilogy, POISONED POLITICS, this Wednesday, Sept 4th, from 7:00pm to 9:00pm at One More Page Books in Arlington, VA. The bookstore is located at 2200 North Westmoreland St, which is right off North Washington Blvd, near I-66. This section of Arlington is right where Arlington stops and the city of Falls Church begins.
2---Thursday evening, Sept 5th, at 7:00pm, I'll join the Book Group at the Downtown DC, Barnes & Noble at the corner of 12th & E Streets to talk about lots of books. Last year they were some of the first readers to discover Molly Malone when I visited their group and introduced DEADLY POLITICS, the first of Molly Malone's adventures.
3---And this Saturday, Sept 7th, at 5:00pm to 7:00pm, I'll be at the Barnes & Noble--Seven Corners Shopping Center in Falls Church, VA to talk to readers and sign books. If you're in the vicinity of any of these events, please drop by and say "hello." I LOVE meeting readers! Honest! :)
Oh, yes----here's a photo of the Penn State/Syracuse football game at MetLife Stadium last Saturday. Penn State won 23-17. But the Orangemen fought valiantly. :)
