There’s a tweet out there notifying people that the “Smokestack Lightning” and “Coffin Dust” book launch party at the Old Court is this Friday, but that’s a week early. I understand the excitement and wild expectation. We’ll have to wait one more week, however, for the prose and Guinness. Come by the Old Court at 7 pm on June 25 for the festivities, and, as mentioned in an earlier post, be prepared to take away as many books as you can possible carry. I stole that line from my friend Bob Martin, singer-songwriter extraordinaire of Lowelltown. He uses it to push CD sales. Either way, buy ’em by the stack, like pancakes.
