Saturday, November 2nd, 2 – 4 PM.
Jeff Whitmore, aka “Sterling Johnson”, will be visiting all of us here at OCB for a signing of his new book DANGEROUS KNAVES!
Whitmore is also the author of the 55-word classic Bedtime Story (“rather wonderful”–The Cambridge Introduction to Narrative, H. Porter Abbot), the St. Martin’s Press bestseller ENGLISH AS A SECOND F*CKING LANGUAGE (“Great f*cking book!”–Stephen King) and WATCH YOUR F*CKING LANGUAGE (“One of those rare smart and funny books.”–Penn Jillette).
He’s a past member of the Writers Guild of America, West, and the San Jose (CA) Newspaper Guild. His cartoons (under the name “Roka”) accompanied his weekly humor column in the Monterey Peninsula Herald.
Whitmore majored in English at Columbia College, NYC, and has performed as a comedian at The Purple Onion in San Francisco, the Improv in San Jose, The Living Room in Redwood City, and other Northern California venues.
For his novel DANGEROUS KNAVES, he drew on his Cold War service as a Public Information specialist for the 24th Infantry Division in Augsburg, Germany. The division was commanded by Maj. General Edwin A. Walker, whose military career was scuttled after he launched the infamous “Pro-Blue” troop-indoctrination program.
