HEY! Bookish peeps! I’ll be at Dennis-Yarmouth High School tomorrow night, March 29, 2019 (5-7pm) with super cool writer weirdos Jim Hill, Mick Carlon, and Kathryn Knight talking books, plots, and characters. It’s all part of the Literacy Night at the high school and Titcombs will be there selling books! Ya gotta come!!!
