I'm pleased to be a part of the 2017 Spring/Summer program of the Author-Speaker series at Chez Zee, a very popular and upscale Austin restaurant. This will be the third in the series, and the "Interview" format by Cari Clark has proven to be informative and informal. The programs are held in the adjacent "private events room," which is roomy and quiet. An additional bonus is an interesting swath of Austin peeps who attend these, always a fun and surprising group.

Wine and beer are available at the cash bar, as well as very nice finger food, which is part of the ticket price. Please reserve June 14 (a Wednesday) evening and join me there.
