If you haven't been to Barbara's Bookstore in Burr Ridge, you should definitely check it out.  I'll be there from 2-4 pm on Saturday, October 1, signing books and chatting about how I coaxed Walland out of my head and onto the page.  And if you haven't bought your own copy yet, all of my proceeds from this event will go to benefit the Hinsdale Humane Society.  Isn't that a great reason to pick up a second copy?  Please join me at Barbara's in Burr Ridge the first Saturday of October!
