Please join us on Saturday November 30 at 3:30 pm when Jerry Sarasin will read from his second novel, Frozen Flamingo Blues, and sign copies for those who ask nicely. The "Yooper" mystery, set on Michigan's Upper Peninsula in the wintertime, features Milo, a down-and-out blues musician. While he is trying to mend his relationship with his long-estranged brother, Milo gets caught between the mob and small-town residents who have hit upon a unique, if illegal, way to subsidize the local economy. Milo then has the bad fortune to fall in love.
