Panel discussion on homelessness

If you’ve been waiting for something from me other than a book signing, it’s finally here. “Down and Out in Las Vegas: The Struggle to Survive in Sin City” is a panel discussion about homelessness, moderated by author and journalist Geoff Schumacher. Kurt Borchard (The Word on the Street) and I will read from and discuss our books and what we discovered roaming the city’s streets and exploring the storm drains. We will also talk about the unique challenges the homeless face amid the glitz, glamour and high-rolling of Las Vegas.

The panel discussion – which has been funded, in part, by an Artist Fellowship award from the Nevada Arts Council, a state agency – will run from 11:45 a.m.-1:15 p.m. Friday, Nov. 2, at the El Cortez Hotel (600 E. Fremont St.). I’ll sign books after the discussion and from 7:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. at First Friday (near the Funk House).

The panel discussion is part of the two-day Vegas Valley Book Festival. For more info on the festival, visit www.vegasvalleybookfest.org.

    Play Roulette for free as often as you like, get a feel for the game and how to place you bets.
    Free Roulette is a great game with many ways to bet so learn strategy and have fun.

    Roulette is a casino and gambling game named after the French word meaning “small wheel”.

    The roulette wheel is believed to be a fusion of the English wheel games … The American style roulette table with a wheel at one end is now used in most casinos.

    Is a Free Roulette Systems 100% Effective Or Should I Pay For One?

    They are a dime a dozen, but there are only a few
    roulette strategies that really work.
