I’ll be the speaker for the Welcome Banquet for the ANG 2014 Seminar at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile hotel. The cash bar starts at 5:45 pm on Sunday, August 24, followed by the dinner at 6:30 pm. Odds are good that I’ll meet some of you there!
Yes, mathematics. A friend sent me a link to an article in Scientific American about knitting mathematical objects. The title of the article, The Stunning Symbiosis between Math and Knitting, is not complete — they seldom are. There’s crochet and bobbin lace in the slide show as well.
Well worth a look, especially the slide show.
Mark your calendars if you’re in or near the Twin Cities: On Saturday, February 7, I’ll be doing a signing at Once Upon A Crime mystery bookstore from 12 to 2. And at Excelsior Bay Books on Saturday, February 15 from 1 to 2 or 2:30. (I’ll be having lunch at Antiquity Rose beforehand, if you want a cute place in Excelsior to come ahead of time.)
If you’re in or near Madison, Wisconsin, I’ll be doing a “Slam” with other authors later in February, the 22nd, 23rd, or 24th. Don’t have the exact date – the “Slam” is all three days – or time, yet. Ellen Kuhfeld with be there, too, promoting her book, Secret Murder.
I’ll be at Magna Cum Murder in Indianapolis the weekend of October 25-27. It’s always a good convention, well worth going to. Hope to see you there!
