Binghamton Native Brings his Hometown Back into New Book

In 2015, my buddy and Binghamton native Everett De Morier released his first novel entitled THIRTY-THREE CECILS. Because a great deal of the book was set in the Binghamton area, the publisher launched the book in The Triple Cities in August of 2015, with book signings, media events, a launch party and i had him on my morning show on our sister station Magic 101.7 …

The novel went on to win the top fiction prize at The London Book Festival, was named small publisher book-of-the-year by Heroic Magazine, is required High School reading, was given a public recognition by Mayor Robin Christianson, and then one by Governor Jack Markell, and is currently being adapted into a major motion picture.

And now, my college bud is repeating this launch process with his new book THE INVENTION OF EVERYTHING; Insights on Life, Food, and One Good Thermos. A collection of the best-of articles from 543 Magazine.

The official launch for the book is December, but Tara Tomczyk, Editor-in-chief of Blydyn Square Books, the publisher of both of Ev’s titles, said they are pre-launching it in the Binghamton area with a few launch parties, book signings, some radio and other media stops and will have a small video to document it all.

The Old World Deli of Binghamton, which is mentioned in the new book, is naming a sandwich after him, which Ev says “is the coolest thing in the world.”

THE INVENTION OF EVERYTHING; Insights on Life, Food, and one good Thermos will have a book reception and signing at The Belmar Pub on Friday, October 26th from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, The sandwich dedication at The Old World Deli at 2:00 pm on then a reception and book signing at The Terrace Tavern in Apalachin on Saturday the 27th from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm.

Everett will also be hanging out in the studio with me on Friday the 26th at 8am.
