Ellen Stimson -Good Grief -Book Signing
The Doylestown Bookshop, Tuesday, October 21 at 6:15pm
Book Signing with Ellen Stimson Tuesday, October 21st @ 6:15 pm

One vacation changed everything. Ellen Stimson and her husband had such a wonderful time in Vermont that they wondered what living there would really be like. What if we stayed here . . . forever? So began the series of adventures and misadventures of Ellen Stimson's hilarious first book, Mud Season. Now, having settled the family in Vermont's rich muddy soil, they are faced with new challenges of raising kids in the paradise of this very small, very rural town. Good Grief tells the tales of the hopes and dreams of parents just trying to do their best and not always succeeding. Imagine being the mom of the kid who peed on his teacher's chair . . . On. Purpose. Now imagine the governor asking you about it Good Grief is all about the inevitable moment right after somebody says, What next? Ellen Stimson's irrepressible optimism and good humor prevail as she, her two husbands, their three kids, and various much-loved pets face down real life, and even death and grieving, with good humor intact. This is life in a state where everyone knows everything, and everything is everybody's else's business."

Good grief! from Almost Blue on Vimeo.

Free Library of Philadelphia - Valerie Plame - Burned
Joseph Fox Bookshop, Thursday, October 23 at 12pm
Burned Valerie Plame At the height of the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, CIA Operations Officer Valerie Plame was outed as a covert operative by conservative news pundit Robert Novak. The federal investigation into this violation of national security eventually implicated the upper echelons of the White House, resulting in convictions for and lawsuits against several top Bush administration officials. Plame’s memoir of this betrayal’s personal and international consequences was titled Fair Game. Plame currently serves as a consultant to the Santa Fe Institute, a scientific, nonprofit research institute. In Burned, Plame’s second in a series of spy novels co-written with Sarah Lovett, a Parisian explosion sets the stage for an international manhunt and possible all-out war.
