The Second Half 

The first half of the Israel Jones Tour of 2014 is now history. A huge thank you to all who came, listened raptly and asked challenging questions at Epic Bookshop and Antioch College’s Coretta Scott King Center in Yellow Springs; and Blue Jacket Books in Xenia. The tour continues with another stop in Yellow Springs and one in lovely, historic Troy, Ohio.

Workshop on 10-26

 On Sunday, October 26, I’m facilitating a workshop on Turning Your Life Into Fiction:  Writing Autobiographical Fiction (ABF) at Epic Bookshop (map), 229 Xenia Avenue, Yellow Springs, Ohio, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. Discussion will focus on what ABF is; which genre, Memoir or ABF, is best for you as a writer; as well as significant differences between the two. A writing exercise will help writers apply what they’ve learned and begin a new fiction or memoir writing project. No experience necessary! There is a registration fee of $20.  Sign up by stopping into the store during open hours, calling Epic (767-2091) or e-mailing owner Gail Lichtenfels at

 Words & Music Merge in Troy, 11-9

 Acoustic harmonies of the trio version of The Fries Band, “Side of Fries,” will interweave with my words from The Psalms of Israel at the atmospheric Troy Hayner Cultural Center at 301 W. Main Street, Troy, Ohio. The part-concert, part-reading will take place on Sunday, November 9, 7:00-9:00 p.m. An author reception and book-signing, including refreshments, will immediately follow.

Stay Tuned for New Developments

 That’s it for now, but new dates could be added. If so, I’ll list them under Events on this page and on my Facebook page. If you’d like to suggest a venue, shoot me an e-mail. I’d be glad to visit your readers’ or writers’ group if it’s not too far away from Yellow Springs and you can assure a reasonable turnout.

Breaking News:  The Beavercreek Barnes & Noble has agreed to give me a reading sometime during the winter or spring of 2015. Stay tuned for date and time!
