Steve Schafer will be signing copies of his recently released novel, The Border. It's a page-turning thriller about four Mexican teens who lose their families in the gang-violence along the border, and are forced to flee to the US across the scorching Sonoran desert. The novel has received glowing reviews from professionals and everyday readers for helping to put a human face on the immigration debate. According to one review, "This book does for illegal immigration what The Hate U Give did for the Black Lives Matter movement."

A songwriter from out of the Midwest trying to make a ripple....
I have been writing songs since I was 17 and I have had the good fortune to be able to have an audience, to listen since about as long. I have played in coffee houses, bars, birthday parties, weddings, divorces, and had some great opportunities like opening up for the great crusades out of Chicago for 3 weeks in Germany, Austria, and Sweden. I had a band at one time called the flatwheel band that opened up for David Allen Coe, the Marshall Tucker Band, Br549, and super grande from the Ozark mountain daredevils. I am still writing songs and playing acoustic at local bars and taverns trying to find the inspiration to write a better song, I just hope that someone some day will feel about one of my songs the way I feel about a lot of my heroes songs.
