One of the big reasons why I love Beantown is our thriving arts scene. Between Berklee and Boston Conservatory, the POPS and art vendors at SoWa, Chuck Hogan and Dennis Lehane; Boston isn’t short of its singers, musicians, artists, and writers. Being a writer is hard (I know) and being a successful one is even harder.
So when Chuck Hogan, author of “The Town,” writes a positive review of your new novel, you put print that sucker on the back of your book. That’s just what author Ron MacLean did with his new novel – “Headlong” – a mystery crime thriller set in Boston.
The official book launch of “Headlong” will be tonight at 7:00pm, at Porter Square Books in Cambridge. Ron MacLean will be on hand to sign, chat, and crack you up. I hear that if you order him a nice bourbon ale, he’ll answer any and all literary questions and be your best friend for the rest of the night. Support a great local author and check out the reading tonight. I’ll be there – let’s be friends!
