Coffee With the Authors – Dennis Hetzel
March 12 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 pm
As a native of Chicago, Dennis Hetzel’s fascination with politics and the Chicago Cubs came naturally. He has blended his experiences as a journalist, lobbyist, reporter and publisher in his award-winning novels, Killing the Curse and Season of Lies. In Killing the Curse, the Cubs are positioned to win the World Series for the first time since 1908. No one wants the Cubs to win more than Luke Murphy, president of the U.S. and lifelong fan. Leading the chorus of disbelievers is Murphy’s boyhood friend, Bob Walters, a radio sports talk show host who built ratings by being “the man Cub fans love to hate.” Add to the mix, a crazed fan and an attack on the father of the Boston pitcher, and and escalating threat that could destroy the president’s career and kill hundreds of innocent people. Everything comes to a head as game seven unfolds. In A Season of Lies, Heitzel again combines sports, politics, thrilling action and memorable characters in a story you won’t forget.
Coffee, tea and refreshments will be served. This gallery event is free, but seating is limited so reservations are necessary. Call Sunset River Marketplace at 910.575.5999 to hold your spot. (Note: Author Betty Brown was originally scheduled for this date. Her appearance has been cancelled due to a medical issue. We hope to reschedule at a later date.)
