Come on by to the second BooksNJ, which is happening on Saturday, June 12, at the Paramus Public Library. I’ll be on the panel Life on the Turnpike with John Hilferty, Jon Michaud, and Pamela Redmond Satran between 2 and 2:45pm. There are over 100 authors at the event, so it should be a pretty good time. The event runs from 1-5pm.
