Meanwhile, you can still catch Louis "downashore" for a lecture, Q&A, and book signing sponsored by the Avalon Free Public Library on Tuesday, July 28, 7 p.m. The event is in the Multipurpose Room of the Avalon Elementary School, right next to the library, three blocks from the Boardwalk.
Last but not least, here's a five-star Amazon review posted by C. Lipkin last month:
It's rare when one can read a book and vividly visualize the scenarios page by page and chapter by chapter. But that's exactly what happened when I read "Mr. Boardwalk". I grew up in Philadelphia and spent my summers at the Jersey shore, very close to where Jason and his family set up shop each summer. So it was easy to read and sense at the same time--the smells of the boardwalk--cotton candy, the ocean and Coppertone, the sights of the piers and the shops; the constant roar of the ocean and the cry of the seagulls. The book was also a great read--it was well-written and nicely paced. And, it covered the spectrum of emotions--I definitely teared up at the end. If you've spent your summers near Atlantic City or the South Jersey shore, grown up in suburban Philadelphia, or just want to read a really good book, check this out.
