You may remember Alex Wellen as the co-creator, executive-producer, and co-host of TechTV's CyberCrime program. He currently is an independent producer and writer, and has just published his first book: Barman.
Savvy and entertaining, Wellen's story is The Paper Chase meets Sex and the City—a career memoir for anyone who has discovered his or her life's goal, yet must overcome tremendous obstacles to attain it.
I'm looking forward to reading this, and since it opens in the middle of interview season its publication is well-timed. ("Braise reminded me of the Cheshire cat from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. At first I found his demeanor a nice change of pace, but by the third or fourth question, I wanted to smack that exaggerated grin right off his face.")
If you're in the San Francisco Bay Area, you're in luck—several events are scheduled for the next couple of weeks:
- September 23, 7:00 PM, A Clean Well Lighted Place for Books, 601 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94102, (415) 441-6670
- September 29, 7:30 PM, Cody's Books, 2454 Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, CA 94704, (510) 845-7852
- October 1, 7:00 PM, Book Passage, 51 Tamal Vista Blvd, Corte Madera, CA 94925, (415) 927-0960
Stop by and say hi, Alex is a great guy and I understand he has been known to read a blawg or two.
