Holiday time is book signing time

I have a book signing for Then and Now: Sacramento coming up this Saturday, December 13.

The signing is at Ivy House, 5601 H Street, in East Sacramento. It starts at 1:00 PM, Saturday December 13, and if it ends up like previous signing events, I will give a brief presentation on local history that will hopefully turn into an open discussion and sharing of local history stories by the audience. Personally, I think that my new book would make a great (and relatively inexpensive) holiday gift for anyone in town, but I do admit to a certain amount of bias on that subject. I hope some of you reading this can make it.
