More from the Department of Self-promotion:


Was in my home state of New Jersey this past Thursday for an Arno event at Books & Greetings, an indie  bookstore in Northvale, hard by the New York State border.  Was greeted by the sight of the poster pictured here, the size of which, I’m sure, would’ve pleased Arno himself.  Thanks to those who attended and to Kenny and company for such a nice reception!

One further note:

I’ll be the guest of Joe Donahue on Public Radio Station WAMC’s  “Roundtable” on Monday, May 2 at 11:30 am. We, of course, will be discussing Peter Arno.
