This, That and the Pictures!

Just a few odds and ends to share on this warm Sunday.

First, a very happy 50th to TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. Not only is it still my favorite book, but it was also the book I most loved teaching. I know, probably a direct relationship. The movie also happens to be one of the few book-based movies I actually think made a nice representation of the book. So, here's to at least 50 more in the spotlight, TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD. And many thanks to Harper Lee who never gave up on it and changed lives through her words.

Next, some congratulations go out to the winners of "Love and Whispers." Sheila K. in Florida and Lethea B. in Alabama were the winners of the John Connolly book soundtracks. I have contacted them and their CDs will be going out tomorrow. Congratulations!

And finally, because June just got away from me, I haven't had a chance to share some pictures from various events. PLUS, I have pictures to share from Gregg Hurwitz's launch party, courtesy of the wonderful Michael from Lazy Thoughts from a Boomer. So, here are a few from Printer's Row:

(I think there may be rules against having as much fun as these folks did on this panel, but I'm not saying anything. I had fun, too!)

(yes, that would be me with the AWARD-WINNING Jamie Freveletti!)

(And one of my heroes of crime fiction writing, Craig McDonald!)

Here are a few pictures from the other two events I attended for Michael Koryta:

And last but, Lord, certainly not least, Gregg Hurwitz celebrated the launch of THEY'RE WATCHING in Southern California on Thursday at a bookstore called Diesel Books. Michael attended for us and brought back these wonderful pictures:

(Yes, that would indeed be Tim Hallinan at Gregg's book launch party! Celebrities galore!)

Have a great week and HAPPY READING!
