I wanted to share a few things with you from the world of The Orbit Magazine Anthology as we start 2016 together.
|The Award Seal Soon to Grace the Book Cover|
The program, since 1991, has spotlighted up to 20 books each year from Michigan authors or about Michigan. If you look at the list of great writers/books, from this year and the past, it's an honor for me as a first time author.
The Library of Michigan, which runs the archives of the State, is honoring the writers with a special event in April. From there, the Library will be working with local libraries around the state to bring in the authors of the books to talk about their work, their process, and other aspects of writing, during April, May, and June of this year. I hope to see more of this great state of ours, including the U.P. which I have not really visited since I was 6 years old, as part of the tour. You'll see dates for the events on this page as well as the book's Facebook page. So, please keep in touch.
|Jack White & Your Humble Author (11-2015)|
I want to thank everyone who helped to make the book party such an amazing success at Third Man Records - Cass Corridor on December 12th. Jack and his team over there - Katie, Roe, Dave, and the counter help - made sure everything went smooth. It was a great time that featured many hugs, laughs, tuneful karaoke (thanks to the great local producer Mike E. Clark), and great fun. If you haven't been to the new store on Willis, just down from where The White Stripes made their name at the Gold Dollar, you are missing out. It's a beautiful space, and much more is on the horizon. I can't wait to see what Jack and his team bring to Detroit once this record presses arrive this summer.
|Hey Quentin, I have a new Orbit T for you - come on down!|
The event is taking place on Saturday February 27th from 4pm-6pm at Book Soup - one of the best indie book stores in L.A.
Share the flyer, let people know. If you are in L.A., or nearby, I'd love to see you.
