T. Jefferson Parker and me

An Evening with T. Jefferson Parker and
Barbara DeMarco-Barrett

We have a very special evening coming up on February 10 with T. Jefferson Parker.

T. Jefferson Parker’s new book, The Renegades, is being published this month, so next Tuesday night, at 7 p.m., we’re holding a launch party at the Student Center on the UC Irvine campus. We’ll discuss Jeff’s new book, he’ll read, take questions, and sign books. There will also be refreshments.

This launch party also heralds “Pen on Fire: A Speaking Series,” which intends to bring literary events to Orange County on a regular, monthly basis.

The show will be recorded for a future broadcast on "Writers on Writing,” KUCI-FM and will also be podcast.

The New York Times Book Review said this about The Renegades: “Another insanely imaginative thriller from T. Jefferson Parker…the wondrously weird characters [take] this lurid plot to its outer limits.”

Unfortunately, reservations cannot be made (seats are free) so please get there early. Here are directions.

If you have any questions, email me at And feel free to tell your friends.

Please join us for a wonderful evening. I hope to see you there.
