From C.E.:

Hi Paul,
As you probably know, I’m going to be in town in December and am putting on a book release party on Saturday the 8th (details below). Hopefully, The Stranger will get the event posted soon. I’m wondering if you have any other suggestions for where else to send the details?   Hope you can make the event.
Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving and see you soon,
CE
