time:  7:30pm

Join us for fantasy author Gregg Schwartzkopf.  Gregg is
the author of the fantasy novels
Quick As A Bunny and
Judgment of the Elders.  

From Gregg's website - http://www.gs1word.com/who-is-
"Gregg Schwartzkopf is a husband, father, vocational
rehabilitation counselor and, most relevantly, a writer. He’s
had the kind of eclectic work experience that one expects
of a writer including food service manager, research
assistant and professional search consultant. Additionally,
he’s spent significant time avoiding reality. In his teens, he
was a member of the Society of American Magicians. He
has an interest in mythology and the occult and he
regularly participates in fantasy role play gaming. He lives
in Brooklyn, NY with his wife of thirty-plus years and a
Manx cat named Ness. For the record, his maternal
grandmother was Canadian."
