Sunday, March 10th

Afternoon - Book Launch in Dupont Circle

Book Launch for Austin S. Camacho
2:00pm - 4:00pm
Celebrate the release of Austin Camacho's novel, The Ice Woman Assignment at The Black Fox Lounge in Dupont Circle. Light hors d'oeuvres served, cash bar available. Here's one review of the book to give you a sense: "The Ice Woman is one of those rare books that does a lot of things and all of them well. Austin Camacho's sizzling tale smoothly blends action-adventure with the paranormal in a book that rivals Stephen King's Firestarter or John Farris' The Fury for power and relevance. As blisteringly original as it is wondrously structured, The Ice Woman is a one-sitting read that is not to be missed." --Jon Land, bestselling author of Pandora's Temple
