If you weren’t able to make it to the event, Curtis did sign copies of The Castle on Deadman’s Island and Death in Kingsport that will be available at McNally Robinson on a first come, first serve basis. Thank you to the wonderful team at McNally Robinson for all their hard work and help!
Don’t forget to read Curtis Parkinson’s interview about The Castle on Deadman’s Island in The Kingston Whig Standard. In the interview, Curtis explains how Boldt Castle inspired this mystery novel.
There was a great number of people who came to hear Curtis Parkinson read. The audience asked him lots of questions, had their books signed, and had their pictures taken. Short video clips of the reading are posted on our youtube channel.
