Here we go again!

Remember the last time Loyola Chicago defeated Illinois to advance in the NCAA tournament? Probably not, it was almost 60 years ago. That 1963 team not only won the championship; in doing so it also created a milestone in the civil rights movement.

Buy Ramblers direct from the publisher

Due to circumstances beyond our control at, the only print copies they’re offering at the moment are from third party resellers. If you want a nice new copy that will pay royalties to the author, buy¬†direct from Agate Publishing and use the promo code “Ramblers” to get $6 off the $16 list price. Or buy from Barnes & Noble. Or buy the Kindle edition, which is probably what Amazon wants you to do.

Much Ado #2 at Arcadia Books

Happy to be returning to Arcadia Books in Spring Green for a second round of hawking and talking about Much Ado.

On Sunday, August 27, I’ll be signing books and chatting informally with readers and friends starting at 11 AM.  At 1 PM, after the crowd thins out a bit (as people head off to the APT matinees), I’ll commandeer a podium and give a more formal (but not very formal) presentation about the book, how it came to be, what I learned in the rehearsal room, and whatever else people want to talk about. Please join us and tell your friends.


Thanks to Doug Moe, Mr. Madison, for a nice writeup in his Madison Magazine blog. He says Much Ado is “delightful.” Obviously a man of taste and breeding, Doug has been writing about Madison and its people for close to 40 years now.
