Featured Reader D.M. Pirone Saturday, February 23rd

DMP Headshot.jpgTamale Hut Cafe is pleased to announce that our Featured Reader for February will be Kirkus Prize nominee D. M. Pirone.

D.M. Pirone is the nom de plume of Diane Piron-Gelman, who works as an editor and audiobook narrator when she isn’t writing. Both books in her Hanley & Rivka historical mystery series, Shall We Not Revenge and For You Were Strangers (Allium Press of Chicago, 2014 and 2015), were named Notable Page-Turners in the Shelf Unbound Indie Novel Competition. Shall We Not Revenge was also a 2014 Kirkus Prize nominee. Ms. Pironne’s debut suspense novel, No Less In Blood (Five Star, 2011) received excellent reviews from Booklist and Publishers Weekly.

A Chicago native and history buff, Ms. Pirrone is a longtime member of Mystery Writers of America Midwest and Sisters in Crime Chicagoland, and also belongs to the Chicago Writers’ Association and the Society for Midland Authors.

Ms. Pirone will kick off the evening at 7:00 by reading from her novels and will be available to sign copies afterwards. Then we’ll open the microphone for any who want to share their words.

As always, there is no cover charge. THC — Supporting the Arts!
