Michael Lister (whose new novel, The Body and Blood, I wrote about here, and reviewed here) has arranged a special Christmas party/pizza party/book signing/author gathering for this Saturday, and you're invited. Come out, have some pizza, meet some writers for a book signing, "and pick up great gifts for all the smart people on your list!" (Or so he said in a Facebook post.)
WHERE AND WHEN: Saturday, Dec. 18, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. at Pizzeria Napoli in Springfield at the corner of Hwy 22 and U.S. Business 98.
Above: That's Michael and another artist/author friend, Dean Minton, at right in a photo from last year's Books Alive. Come out and meet us Saturday. The fiction is spicy and delicious, and the pizza will be good too.
