Book Signing at The New Jersey State Library

The Hart/Calu promotional train goes on and on.  Dave and John made a stop at the New Jersey State Library to talk about their influences and read an excerpt from their new book, Adventures Along the Jersey Shore.

We had a robust crowd and we sold out all of our copies of the book!

We are  truly humbled by the dozens of folks who came by to buy a book or two, meet us or just say hello. It was great connecting with our fans and signing copies of our books for them.

Courier Post Interview With Dave Hart and John Calu

The interview with the Courier Post is now online!  Carol Comegno took the time to interview John and Dave during the book launch at the PPA in September. Carol asked the authors what inspired them to write the book and why they chose South Jersey its lore as the back drop for the book.

Hart said there is nothing like South Jersey. “It has its own natural resources and there are no other spots like the Pinelands and Jersey Shore in the world,” he said.

You can read the entire interview by visiting the Courier Post website.

Book Launch at the Pinelands Preservation Alliance

Dave and John had a great  time signing copies of Adventures Along the Jersey Shore for our book launch party at the Pinelands Preservation Alliance on Sunday.  We were lucky enough to have warm weather,  and the attendance was very good.

The authors read sample passages from the book to the attendees and refreshments were served as well.  We were also treated to the musical stylings of Paul Evans Pedersen, Jr.

A special thanks to Mike Pippin and Becky Free at the PPA for allowing Plexus and the authors have the book launch on their beautiful grounds.
