NOTE: Book Talks on hold 

     (March 15, 2020) Due to COVID-19 (the novel coronavirus pandemic), Jeff Falkingham's popular Book Talks program (for schools, libraries, historical societies, book or social clubs and other venues) has been put on HOLD until further notice. Jeff hopes to resume scheduling events as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding!  

        If you are quarantined, in isolation, or merely 'socially distancing' yourself, remember that Jeff's two Sherlockian adventures are available in digital form, FREE, for Minnesota library patrons. Just scroll to the bottom of the Contacts page on this website for details. A few hours of relaxed reading will not solve all our problems; but it might take your mind off them for a while. Every little bit helps! Please remain happy, healthy, safe and sane during these difficult times. And be kind to others!
