Hot Off the Press! Part Two: The Cigar Maker

The second book that bears our stamp is Mark McGinty's The Cigar Maker, a great novel about Cuba and Ybor City circa 1900, which I talk more about here. I drew a few maps for the interior, which you can see below.

Make sure to pick up a copy during Art-A-Whirl during the release party (from Mark's facebook page):

Start Time: Friday, May 14, 2010 at 5:30pm
End Time: Sunday, May 16, 2010 at 5:00pm
Location: Svedberg Studio, 3359 Tyler St NE, Northeast Minneapolis


Mark McGinty's second novel "The Cigar Maker" will be released in Minneapolis at Art-A-Whirl May 14th - May 16th. Join Mark at Svedberg Studio on 3359 Tyler St NE.

Art-A-Whirl, presented by the Northeast Minneapolis Arts Association, is the largest open studio and gallery tour in the United States.

It is a highly anticipated annual event that welcomes local and regional visitors to the Arts District in Northeast Minneapolis to see the art being made in this area and to meet the artists.

As visitors come to see the art over the three-day weekend they also experience the unique and welcoming community of Northeast Minneapolis.


And for you technophiles, you can buy The Cigar Maker as an ebook on Amazon!

UPDATE (4/30/10): The Cigar Maker holds the #1 spot for cigar-themed book downloads! Congrats, Mark!
