Shameless Promotion

I get email from PR flacks from time to time, asking me to use the blog to promote this or that Pittsburgh-related product or service or new company. I almost always ignore them.

Today, though, I got an interesting message from a rep for Maggie Leffler, one of three Pittsburgh-area women with new books. I don't have any plans to buy her book, but the message prompted me to take a look at Maggie's bio, and it turns out that she's from Columbia, Maryland.

Which is interesting solely because earlier today I learned that Michael Chabon is also from Columbia, Maryland. Chabon has a well-known Pittsburgh-area connection and also has a new book to promote.
