It’s game time for my new novel, “The Penalty for Holding,” at Barnes and Noble’s concept store in Eastchester. Join me Sept. 7 for a reading from the work — about a gay, biracial quarterback’s search for identity in the NFL — along with nibbles, bubbly and a no-holds-barred discussion of sports, culture and sex. We’ll be dancing in the end zone from 5:30 to 7 p.m. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by Aug. 28. Hope to see your there.
