Cool News About the Book, and a Couple Local Events

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.

Wish we could stop by today at the Seward but we're off to Red Wing for the afternoon and evening. Congratulations on the Minnesota Book Award!
