Dear Fellow Matzotonians:
Come join me for the Grand Opening of the Penn Kidder Library on Friday, June 28, 2013 from 10am to 2pm where you can also purchase a signed copy of As the Matzo Ball Turns. Part of the proceeds will be donated to the new Penn Kidder Library which is the result of some very hard work by a few incredibly dedicated citizens.
The library resides in the Pine Point Plaza also known as Hazel Park located behind the Car Wash. The Plaza sits at the intersection of Rt. 903 and Rt. 534 in Albrightsville. So come on out, clean your car, check out the library and by all means get yourself a signed copy of the book that is taking Eastern Weissport by storm, As the Matzo Ball Turns.
Hope to see ya there!!!!
Hey, Hey, Hey, It’s Jozeeeefffff Rothstein!! And I’ll be returning to one of my favorite Barnes and Noble stores, 421 Arena Hub Plaza, Wilkes-Barre, PA 18702 on Saturday, May 18, 2013 from noon to 3pm. This signing will prove to be an exciting one as the remaining votes are tallied for the book of the year award in the humor category by Foreword Reviews. As the Matzo Ball Turns has already been selected as a finalist for this prestigious honor and your support at this critical time is not only deeply appreciated but incredibly necessary. So come on down and bring mom for a belated Mother’s Day gift. I was just kidding, YOU BETTER NOT FORGET ABOUT YOUR MOTHER ON MOTHER’S DAY!!!! Hope to see ya at the signing!
On Saturday, April 13th I will be rolling into Lancaster via my horse drawn matzo ball carriage for a book signing at the Lancaster Barnes and Noble, Red Rose Commons, 1700 N. Fruitville Pike, Lancaster, PA 17601. The event runs from noon to 3pm and promises to be a fun filled event. So fire up your gas lamps and spreadeth the word as Jozef cometh to town to sign his very humorous book. And as Levi and Merlin battle for territory we will make matzo ball history. I hopeth to see you there!!!!
As the Matzo Ball Turns recently made it’s debut in Oregon state via ATMBT spokesperson/model Steven Grissinger as seen in the following pictures. Enjoy the beauty of the surroundings and the strong message each one of these pictures conveys as Steven takes you on a virtual tour of Duck country while the matzo ball turns through this gorgeous west coast state!!! ~J.R.
Dear Matzo Ball Faithful:
You can feel the anticipation building in the air as the 60 plus judges made up of librarians and book sellers dwindle down their choices for the gold, silver and bronze prizes in the Foreword Reviews book of the year awards. As the Matzo Ball Turns is one of seven finalists in the humor category (and not horror category as some of you might think, myself included). Keep your fingers crossed and please continue to spread the word about this book as the success of this great American novel depends on you. Thank you all for your support and encouragement and hopefully we bring home the gold (or at least a year’s supply of tuna fish). Ta Ta and thanks again!!!
