Wednesday, this: Jon R-G reading from mss.

jonThis Wednesday (at the Water’s Edge):

July 13           Writing with Jon Rieley-Goddard:  Co-pastor Jon will give readings from two book projects that he is working on–a novel titled Grimoire: The Mystery Man Murders, first of a series concerning a group of over-the-hill and cast-aside spooks who run a used bookstore and cannot keep out of trouble, and a non-fiction title, House of Verbs: Grammar (some) and Usage (a ot) for Writers. Jon is also a publisher (BaldyBooks) using print-on-demand technology.  One Riverside-Salem tie-in with the novel is the history of our church during the Vietnam war, when members’ antiwar stance attracted the attention of certain TLAs (three-letter agencies, such as FBI). The novel, first in a series, is partly an imagined back-story for the agents who were so interested in fellow citizens of good intentions.
