Vroman’s Local Author Day introducing SA Stolinsky, Hal Ackerman, and David M. Hamlin

S.A. Stolinsky presents and signs Hot Shot
Payback is a powerful thing...

Actor and bartender, Tyler West experiences a sudden streak of luck -- winning poker games. Determined to change his life, he enters the World Series of Poker. His life is suddenly turned upside down when the Russian mafia fronts him 1.5 million dollars to play at the tables. And then...he loses.

Now on the ride of his life, deceit and deception are his key to uncovering the truth. He must recoup the money, but will it come at a price? Can he stay alive long enough or will his time run out?

Hal Ackerman presents and signs The Boy Who Had a Peach Tree Growing Out of His Head
"The collection strongly recalls the conflicted, masculine themes and anxieties of John Updike, Saul Bellow, and Phillip Roth, but mostly Updike."

Witty and transparent, Ackerman uses a bold prose to weave his short stories together. A recurring theme is the aftermath of divorce, which can do a number on the human mind. But overall, love fills the pages---lost love, love between a parent and child, love at first sight, and even forbidden love. Each story will make you think, feel and question. 

David M. Hamlin presents and signs Winter in Chicago
Winter in Chicago is a mystery set in 1975 Chicago which pays tribute to women who broke glass ceilings in that era and celebrates the last great days of rock and roll on AM radio. David M. Hamlin’s first novel is filled with a cast of eccentric characters including deejays, broadcast consultants, Chicago’s rich and famous, a couple of cab drivers, a bit-part actress and Mayor Richard J. Daley.  At the center of it all, a determined radio reporter employs her considerable talent and skill to chase down an explosive story in the face of adversity at every turn.
