I’m pleased to announce that my latest book, Secret Tucson, has been published by Reedy Press of St. Louis and is now available for purchase at Tucson area bookstores, online at Amazon.com, or from Reedy Press.
What’s Secret Tucson about? The subtitle, A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure says it all, though I would add you’ll find such nuggets as:
What one time New York crime boss spent his last decades in Tucson?
Why does the Beatles’ classic song “Get Back” include a nod to Tucson?
Why is Tucson a must stop on many treasure hunters’ maps — and where can you search for a fortune in gold?
Where was John Dillinger captured in Tucson in 1934 after a series of blunders by his gang?
What locale is home to both the country’s southernmost ski resort and a World War II Japanese-American relocation camp?
Which cutting-edge scientific lab is located beneath a Tucson football stadium?
And much more!
This is a follow-up to my best selling book 100 Things to Do in Tucson Before You Die, and digs deeper into the lesser-known areas of the city.
I’ll be appearing for a book signing on November 9 from 1-3 p.m. at Barnes and Noble Westside in Tucson and hope to see you there!
Barnes and Noble’s Westside address is Foothills Mall, 7325 N. La Cholla Blvd., Suite 100, in Tucson.
Thanks also to the folks at the National Parks Service bookstore in Oro Valley, where we had a capacity crowd of 60 people on Saturday, October 26, for a Secret Tucson talk and signing. And thanks to all who bought both Secret Tucson and 100 Things to Do in Tucson Before You Die at the event!
With best wishes to all,
