Chicago RIverThe 2015 ABA Annual Meeting will take place in Chicago from July 30 to August 4. I’m going to be there to talk about Supreme Ambitions, and I invite you to attend one or both of these events:

1. The Law As A Platform For Writing — Saturday, August 1, 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. (panel) and 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (book signing)

Talmage Boston, a shareholder in the Dallas office of Winstead PC and the author of multiple books himself, will moderate a panel featuring me and three amazing authors: Judge Richard Posner (7th Cir.), author of more than 30 books (and one of my blurbers on Supreme Ambitions); William Landay, author of one of my favorite legal novels, Defending Jacob; and Laura Caldwell, author of 14 novels and one non-fiction book.

2. The Author Journey — Sunday, August 2, 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. (panel) and 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. (book signing)

My editor on Supreme Ambitions, Jonathan Malysiak, will moderate a panel featuring me and five other authors published by Ankerwycke Books: Lindsay Cameron, former Schulte Roth associate and author of the eagerly awaited Biglaw; Jeff B. Cohen, actor (Chunk in Goonies) turned lawyer and author of The Dealmaker’s Ten Commandments; Dina Gold, author of Stolen Legacy: Nazi Theft and the Quest for Justice; Ronald Fierstein, author of A Triumph of Genius: Edwin Land, Polaroid, and the Kodak Patent War; and Terrence Hake, author of Operation Greylord: The True Story of an Untrained Undercover Agent and America’s Biggest Corruption Bust.

If you haven’t already registered for the ABA Annual Meeting, you can do so through the ABA website. I look forward to seeing folks in Chicago!

Today’s New York Times contained a great feature story by Alexandra Alter about Supreme Ambitions and its publisher — Ankerwycke, the new trade imprint of the American Bar Association devoted to legal fiction and more accessible nonfiction.
