Steven Rinella is making a homecoming visit to Muskegon Community College on Wednesday at 7:00pm with a “public appearance” at MCC’s Overbrook Theater. Rinella is the author of the Scavenger’s Guide to Haute Cuisine and American Buffalo: In Search of a Lost Icon, and host of the Wild Within on the Travel Channel.

Finally, I’m asking readers to support my own literary endeavors as managing editor of BULL: Men’s Fiction. BULL is close to making the semifinals of Docker’s “Wear the Pants” contest, but we still need votes. Read about the contest at the BULLblog, and vote on Facebook. The catch (of course) is that voting takes place via a Facebook application, which requires voters to allow Docker’s limited access to their information. A pain, but worth it... for literature, for me.
