Mid-life crises manifest themselves in many ways.

We re-examine our existence and reasons for being.

We make significant changes – in careers, relationships, lifestyle.

We feel the desire to hit the road and head out into the countryside, to the mountains, to the beach.

We reflect on our roles as sons and as fathers.

David W. Berner has been there and back, including a modern-day road trip that paralleled Jack Kerouac’s On the Road – except Berner did it with his two teenage sons and his best friend.

In an RV.

Join David at the Union League for stories about life in the middle lane…

about the experiences and epiphanies on the road...

about lessons learned from our fathers…

and about lessons we want to pass on to our sons.

David W. Berner is a broadcast journalist for WBBM radio in Chicago. He is also a teacher and an author. His first book, Accidental Lessons was awarded the Royal Dragonfly Grand Prize for Literature. His stories have been published in a number of literary magazines and journals, and his broadcast reporting and audio documentaries have aired on the CBS Radio Network and dozens of public radio stations across America.

Author Discussion & Signing with Jeffrey Siger
Centuries & Sleuths Bookstore, Wednesday, December 3 at 7pm
Title: Sons of Sparta: #6 A Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis Mystery

Author: Jeffrey Siger

This is Jeffrey's 6th Andreas Kaldis mystery and his 6th visit to Centuries & Sleuths. This is a tradition wheo hope will never end.

Come visit with Jeff as he talks about his latest msytery set in modern Greece.

Since he lives in Greece for about 1/2 of each year he can tell about his obeservations about this country in the 21st century. He loves the country, but he is quite frank when talking about what he sees.

Did the warriors of ancient Sparta simply vanish without a trace along with their city, or did they find sanctuary at the tip of the mountainous Peloponnese? That stark, unforgiving region's roots today run deep with a history of pirates, highwaymen, and neighbors ferociously repelling any foreigner foolishly bent on occupying this part of Greece. Less well recorded are the Mani's families' strict code of honor and their history of endless vendettas with neighbors and with their own relatives. No wonder their farms look like fortresses. When Special Crimes Division Detective Yiannis Kouros is summoned from Athens to the Mani by his uncle, Kouros fears his loyalty to his boss, Chief Inspector Andreas Kaldis, is about be to be tested by family pressure on the detective to act in some new vendetta, for this uncle once headed the Mani's most significant criminal enterprise. Instead, Kouros learns the family is about to become rich through the sale of its property until the uncle is killed, and thus the deal. Acting swiftly to head off a new cycle of violence, Kouros satisfactorily solves the murder. Or so it seems until, back in Athens, Kaldis' probe into deeply entrenched government corruption leads straight back to the Mani. Both cops now confront a host of unexpected twists, unanticipated players, unanswered questions and people yet to die."has become a tradition that we hope will never end.
