We received some exciting news this weekend: The Trout Caviar book was named a finalist for the 2012 Minnesota Book Awards . It's one of four finalists winnowed down from over 40 nominees in the general non-fiction catergory. Looking at some of the excellent titles that weren't named finalists, I have to say, I feel a bit abashed; but hey, I'll take it, and gratefully. The awards ceremony takes place on April 14.
Also, I've got a couple local signings lined up in the next few weeks:
On Saturday, February 4, from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m., I'll be meeting and greeting and signing books at the Seward Co-op at Franklin Avenue and Riverside in Minneapolis.
Then on Saturday, February 18, I'll be at the River Market co-op on Main Street in Stillwater from noon to 3:00. Valley Bookseller will also take part in this event.
In both cases, there will be snacks prepared from recipes in the book. Hope to see you there.
