Author of local fame announces book release

Thank you so much for mentioning my book! (“Talk of the town,” page 29, Dec. 19.) One little correction is that it comes out in July 2008, not June (publishers move dates around a lot, but July is solid now). If people would like to read more about the book, check out my website, And though the book takes place largely in Wisconsin, the main character does move to Forest Park toward the end as a little tribute to my favorite ‘burb!

A marvelous effort

Our Forest Park village did a fantastic job of cleaning the streets, alleys and sidewalks after the recent snowfall on Dec. 15. Our sincere thanks to all the village workers.
