Event: Science Fiction Author Panel at Falmouth Library

For people in southern Massachusetts who were asking, when is Michael going to be in the area to talk about I Remember the Future, here's your chance.

On Wednesday, June 17, from 7:00 pm to 8:45 pm, I'll be participating in a science fiction author panel at the Falmouth Public Library. I'm looking forward to this event, as I love libraries and it's the first time that Falmouth is having a science fiction panel. Also, they got a great lineup. The other authors are Jennifer Pelland, Jeffrey A. Carver, and Walter H. Hunt.

I believe we'll all have books available for people to buy and get signed.

Local CPR and First Aid Training Opportunity for Friends

Nomi and I have arranged for a friend, Carsten Turner, who is a certified instructor, to teach us CPR and First Aid at our place.  He's willing to open up his class to any of our friends in the area that want or need certification.

Carsten will be teaching layperson CPR for adult, child, and infant, including choke-saving (what was previously known as the Heimlich maneuver) and the use of AED, along with First Aid.  If we can get a few more people to take the class, it'll only cost $50 per person for the CPR part, and $80 total for those who also stay for First Aid. In addition to getting a wallet card showing certification, you'll also get a book with a CD.  Also, if anyone wants to purchase a pocket face mask, Carsten has wallet-size ones for $10 and a larger one that's $15.

We're planning to hold the class on Sunday, June 28 at our place.  If you're interested in signing up, reply here or send me an email.
