The folks at Borders have invited me to give a slide show on Red Faber's life and career and to participate in a book-signing.
It starts 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 24, at the Dubuque store in Kennedy Mall. I'll have a show of 30 minutes or so featuring old photos of Faber and other White Sox notables.
For several months, my Faber biography was not carried in the local Borders because my publisher and bookstore chain officials were percentage points apart over discounts. Now they have reached an agreement, at least as it links to a program/booksigning event.
Meanwhile, the books remains available at River Lights Bookstore, in Wacker Plaza, where owner Martha Fuerste has been supportive from the start.
