Put-in-Bay novelist Bob Adamov will be signing books at Twisted Sisters Gallery in downtown Marblehead (next to Avery's Cafe) on Saturday, Oct 12, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Bob Adamov is an American mystery adventure writer whose stories are based in the Lake Erie South Bass Island resort town of Put-in-Bay, the “Key West of the Midwest.” His novels follow the adventures of Washington Post investigative reporter, Emerson Moore, and are written in the style of Adamov’s favorite author, Clive Cussler. Adamov was the featured author at the 2006 Ernest Hemingway Days’ Literary Festival in Key West and named 2010′s Writer of the Year by the University of Akron’s Wayne College. His first novel, Rainbow’s End, was a finalist as the top fiction novel for the 2003 Great Lakes Book Award competition that was won by the Pulitzer Prize-winner, Middlesex.
All of his novels were rated “5 Stars” by the Midwest Book Review and named as top novels in northeast Ohio by the Akron Beacon Journal. His novels have won awards at the Hollywood Book Festival, London Book Festival, New York Book Festival and the Indie Awards. He was a guest author at the 2008 & 2010 Clive Cussler Collectors Society Convention where he met his hero, Clive Cussler, and toured his car collection. Mr. Cussler endorsed Adamov’s fifth book, saying,“The Other Side of Hell is a great read!”
This is all part of the Marblehead Lighthouse Festival celebration. There will be a trolley running from downtown Lakeside (the site of the festival) to downtown Marblehead, and to the Lighthouse. There are coupons in the trolley brochure for many of the shops in Marblehead that day. The Twisted Sisters Gallery coupon is featuring a free Christmas ornament (Legend of the Anchor) with purchase to the first 50 coupon holders.
The Lighthouse will be open for tours (last of the 2013 season), and the Museum and Gift Shop will also be open for the last time this year.
