Where I’ll Be

If you’re in or around the Washington, DC area on Wednesday night, you should come by the University Club of DC for its 28th annual Meet the Author Night & Book Fair. More than 65 authors will be there — including yours truly, where I’ll be sitting behind a pile of the newly-printed George Lucas paperbacks.


The University Club of DC is located in a really impressive building at 1135 16th Street N.W., right off Sakharov Plaza.  For more information about the book fair, and the club itself, you can check things out at

And then get all jealous reading about him enjoying London.

Now here’s hoping he comes back to tell me he’s sold foreign rights for Washington Irving. Hey, I can dream, right? (Yes! Come onnnnn, Spanish market! Donde esta casa de paypay…)
