You are invited to a Zoom Book Party

In a couple of weeks, it will be four years since we held a book-signing party at our home for Mel’s last book, Whistleblower at the CIA. Unfortunately, due to Covid, we are unable to host another book-signing party at our home right now.

However, we would like to invite you to join us for an exciting and interesting evening zoom party with Mel to discuss his book and answer any questions you may have. Below please find the link to purchase the book through its publisher, Politics, and Prose.

Scheduling the zoom party in six weeks should give everyone sufficient time to purchase the book, read it, and, if interested, submit questions for Mel.

Once you RSVP, we will send you a link. RSVP details on the event page here.
