Author Open House with Local Fiction Writer Bob Boone
On Saturday, February 19th from 12 noon to 2 PM, The Book Stall welcomes award-winning author Bob Boone. He’ll be signing copies of his latest volume of short stories, City U. This is Mr. Boone’s third work of fiction and features the inhabitants of a large city school – the teachers, students, old folks, volunteers, administrators and everything that makes a center of learning into its own ecosystem.
Kirkus Reviews says, “Boone’s economical use of dialogue serves a dual purpose, as characters reveal questionable attitudes in a small amount of space or, more often, withhold uncomfortable truths from themselves and others. These layered, often humorous classroom insights are buoyed by the author’s lean, clear writing style.”
Note this is an open house, not a sit-down reading or program. Feel free to stop by anytime during those hours to say hello and get a book signed. Can’t make it that day? Give us a call at 847-446-8880 and we can get you a signed copy! Please note that masks are currently required for anyone entering The Book Stall.
