Book Signing: Bill Katz Donald’s Vanity Tantrums
Bill Katz began writing satires for his high school newspaper. After attending local colleges, Katz purchased a one way ticket to Europe and backpacked around the continent for a few years, finally making Florence, Italy his temporary home. He returned with a new found interest in art and eventually became a dealer of African American art.He is a singer/songwriter and he writes what has been described as “Songs of Conscience.”
From Hartford wit, song writer and activist Bill Katz comes a fresh take on this hilarious but critical moment in the decline of American politics.
Here are fifty two stories written in the form of satires, spoofs and scathing commentaries along with 18 illustrations created by Joe Young of Joe Young Studios/Maurice Starr Entertainment. Mary Trump now has company.
Book Signing: Linda Mercier Searching Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow
Linda’s book, “Searching Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow is a compendium of well crafted poems from her life experiences from the age of 9 years old to the present, that show God’s grace and love. It is a work that gives hope to one who seeks compassion, understanding, and faith.
It is founded by the author Linda Mercier who found God in her sorrows and trials when he made Himself known to her. It is an eye opening reminder to continue searching for the only true creator and to knock on his door because his dwelling place is for everyone who accepts his grace and love sincerely. She hopes these poems speak to your heart and help you listen for God’s still and quiet words.
She lives in Wallingford with her husband John, their cat, Callie Cat, (who you will meet in her book). Linda also spends time outside enjoying her chickens and overlooking her fish pond.
