A Family Story Today, Wisconsin Gothic Tomorrow, and According to Jim Stingel, a Stephen King Novel for You to Read for the Next, Two Months

See it today! Meet John Schissler today at 2 PM. John is the author of Passage: the Making of an American Family, and a Milwaukee institution, having taught at John Marshall High School for (can I really use this in a sentence?) scores of years.

Catch details about the event on the front page of today's Cue section of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Tomorrow's big author is Robert Goolrick, author of the breakout bestseller A Reliable Wife. He'll be appearing at Boswell on Sunday at 2 PM. The book is #1 on The New York Times bestseller list for trade paperback fiction.

#1. We're having a #1 author.

More book stories in the Journal Sentinel. Read Jim Stingel's column on the delights and drawbacks of reading a big fat book, in this case, Stephen King's Under the Dome. Don't forget to watch the short video, partly shot at the bookstore. Very goofy fun.
