A big week for Kasper Hauser

We’re thrilled to announce that our two new books — “Obama’s Blackberry” and “Weddings of the Times” — are officially in bookstores today and tomorrow, Monday and Tuesday, June 8/9. We’re proud of these two new additions to the KH oeuevrer (sp?) and we hope you like them. Please ask your local bookstore to order, and tell a friend, too. (You can order both at Amazon, or the online retailer of your choice, by going to the “Books” page on this web site).
