With my book now on shelves (and, of course, in “fulfillment centers”), I thought I’d do a little roundup of book-related publicity so far. In addition to several book events around town in November and December, the list that follows offers some ways to watch, listen, or read more about Believing in Cleveland. If you’d like to get a copy of the book for yourself (or as a last-minute holiday gift), it is available at Mac’s Backs Books (Coventry Village), Visible Voice Books (Tremont), Loganberry Books (Larchmere), Learned Owl Bookshop (Hudson), Barnes & Noble (Eton on Chagrin), and of course from online sellers. I hope to schedule additional appearances in the winter and spring. Feel free to get in touch!
