Easy Meals for Lazy Guys Author to Attend Glens Falls Book Fair
David Fiske, author of Easy Meals for Lazy Guys (uh, Make that “Busy” Guys), will be one of the authors participating in Autumn Leaves: the Glens Falls Chronicle Book Fair.
Men sometimes have to cook for themselves, and with loads of stuff to do, they don't always want to spend hours fixing gourmet meals. (Nor do they want to spend a lot of time cleaning up afterward!) Written in an informal, light-hearted tone, the book’s easy-to-read, no-nonsense instructions can be followed by people (especially men) who have little experience in the kitchen.
Sub-titled “How to Break the Fast Food Habit without Knocking Yourself Out!”, Easy Meals for Lazy Guys provides ways for men to avoid the two options of buying fast food or living on microwave dinners.
Fiske is also the author of Solomon Northup: His Life Before and After Slavery. Solomon Northup was a free black man living in Saratoga Springs, New York, when in 1841 he was lured into leaving the state, and was sold into slavery. After being rescued nearly twelve years later, he authored a book, Twelve Years a Slave, about his life. Fiske’s book reveals details of Northup’s life after his return to upstate New York.
The 17th annual Book Fair will take place on Sunday, November 4, 2012 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Queensbury Hotel located at 88 Ridge Street in downtown Glens Falls, New York. The event is open to the public at no charge.
At the Book Fair, dozens of authors, including Mr. Fiske, will be displaying, signing, and selling their books. All varieties of books will be included: children’s books, regional history, travel guides, Adirondack titles, outdoor guides, pictorial volumes, poetry, mysteries, science fiction stories, and cook books.
Attendees will be able to interact with authors as they staff their tables. In addition, some formal presentations will be scheduled.
