BOOK NEWS: For the past year and a quarter, I’ve been working on The Bark Minder Project, a collection of edgy work for adults. As part of that, I created a novel that was initially serialized on Spotify.
Last week, I finished the umpteenth draft and began sending queries to agents. I’ll keep you posted as news develops.
It was an honor to be nominated for the 2019 Audie Award for Original Work. I went to New York to the glitziest event ever… And we didn’t win. They picked a production with a broadway cast. Oh well. It’s available on Audible.
This Saturday (April 13) at 3pm, I’ll be performing at the New England Folk Festival in Mansfield, MA. It’s been a few years since I’ve been at NEFFA, the site of my first live recording. If you haven’t been, they take over the entire Mansfield High School and fill it with dancing, music, and of course storytelling. Fun for families, couples and singletons.

Only TWO open studios left for this spring. Stop by to say hi and check out my books and audios at my office on Saturday April 13 from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm (Leaving early for the gig) and Saturday April 20 from 9:30 to 1pm. The address is 1005 Main Street, Pawtucket RI, 02860. I’m on the second floor (go up either staircase from the Main Street entrance.
On Saturday, April 27 at 4:00pm, I’ll be bringing “Life in Chelm” to Congregation Beth El, 183 French Street, Bangor, ME. This is my second visit to this congregation, and I’m looking forward to it. This is an all-ages event, free and open to the public. Arrive early to get a good seat. (There’s also a young person’s program on Sunday morning at 10:30)
Passover is Coming
Did you know I wrote a collection of Passover stories called Matzah Mishugas?
It’s true! These are eight enjoyable stories of Matzah, matzah, matzah and… love. Get a copy on amazon (https://geni.us/matzah/) or find out more at https://markbinder.com/chelm#matzah/
