Twin Cities Herfs Up!

Hi guys, I wanted to share an event that's coming up next week at Little Havana Tobacco in Anoka.

I will be doing a book signing and reading for "The Cigar Maker"...here are the details:

Local author Mark McGinty (CigaRobbie, Dog Watch Cigar Radio, The Cigar Authority) for a night of cigars and conversation as Mark
signs and discusses his new novel "The Cigar Maker."

Have dinner in downtown Anoka and then stop by Little Havana Tobacco for cigar specials, book signing and chat.

November 10th 6:30pm - 9:00pm
Little Havana Tobacco
201 Jackson St Anoka, MN
Free and open to the public

"McGinty creates a vibrant, hectic and exciting atmosphere as he describes such things as the bolita games, cock fighting and the constant struggle between immigrant workers and the "Captains" of the cigar industry."
-The Tampa Examiner

Here is the facebook invite:

About Mark McGinty:
Mark Carlos McGinty is a descendant of Cuban cigar makers whose work has appeared in Cigar City Magazine and La Gaceta. He grew up on ropa vieja, Cuban sandwiches, café con leche, and fresh-squeezed OJ from his grandfather’s tree in West Tampa. His favorite cigar is the Arturo Fuente Flor Fina 8-5-8.

About "The Cigar Maker"
The Cigar City. The year is 1898. Young Cuban rebel Salvador Ortiz and his family have escaped the hardship of war-torn Cuba, but the union halls, cigar factories, and dark alleys of Tampa are filled with violence and vendetta. Salvador must defy constant labor strife and deadly corruption in a one-industry town known for backroom cockfights, street thugs, late-night abductions and mass production of the world’s best hand-rolled stogies. An ideological battle for control of the cigar industry tests Salvador’s self-respect and love of hard work as he fights to abandon his rambunctious, outlaw past and lead his proud Cuban family into a colorful immigrant society. His wish for a peaceful life as a husband, a father, and a man of dignity is threatened by a lawless underworld and a cultural conflict with a dangerous, bloody history. Based on true events.
Author of The Cigar Maker...2010 Book of the Year Finalist
