The Ripple Meets the Deep  reading on Saturday, October 18th was followed by signings that lasted all night long at Mick O’Shea’s Irish Pub in Baltimore. The reading featured the amazing Laura Malkus of The Wayfarers who joined Jason Tinney in bringing Ripple’s characters to life. Later in the evening, the Donegal X-Press performance featuring Jason Tinney on harmonica kept the house full all night and brought Laura Malkus on stage for a Wayfarers/DXP set.  Many thanks to the crowd of music and book lovers, the friends and family of Mick O’Shea’s and owners Dave & Steph Niehenke for their support.
