Hello, Loyal Readers!
Been a fun month with the launch of Best of Bacon: Select Cuts, including a great launch at the Ann Arbor District Library on Friday, May 11. Despite a monsoon that evening, we still drew 150 hearty souls to the event, and had fun telling new stories about Bo Schembechler, Ernie Harwell, my fifth-grade baseball coach, and my father for Father’s Day. Lots of laughter in the room made for a great night.
At all these stops they will have plenty of copies of Best of Bacon, which I’ll sign any way you like, including for your new graduate or your dad on Father’s Day — always the toughest guy to shop for!
Next stop: Chicago on Wednesday, May 23, at a fancy downtown law firm meeting room. $20 admission, $15 for UM Alumni Club members — and includes lots of good stuff.
Then Traverse City’s Indigo Hotel, right on the Bay, on Tuesday, May 29th. It’s free — thank you UM Club of TV! — and open to the public.
And finally our stalwart Nicola’s Books in Ann Arbor on Tuesday, June 12 — right before Father’s Day.
From the preface: “I wrote these stories between 1992 and 2018. They cover a dozen different sports for a dozen different media outlets, from the Ann Arbor News to National Public Radio, and they stretch from a couple pages to a dozen. But they have one thing in common: they all meant a lot to me when I wrote them, and they still do today.”
Hope to see you there!
