I’ll Be Talking Books ‘n’ Sherlock at Art on Chocolate in Hershey Saturday

I haven’t talked much about being publisher of a small press. I should. It’s been a constant education as we try new things, publish more books, and see everything grow.

How to identify Peschel Press in the wild. We'll be under the canopy in Chocolatetown Square.

This time, we’ll be appearing at the first Art on Chocolate in Hershey today, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There’s going to be about 150 craft booths, some juried, music, food, and entertainment.

It’s a new project started by the Hershey Derry Township Historical Society and the Downtown Hershey Association. They hope to make it grow from year to year until it becomes a regional destination for people who like to spend the day in the sweetest place on Earth.

Peschel Press will be in Chocolatetown Square Park, across from the Hershey Press Building. We’ll be selling all of our books, including the latest in the 223B Casebook Series, “Sherlock Holmes Victorian Parodies and Pastiches 1888-1899.”

I’ll be there, talking about Sherlock Holmes, writing, publishing, and answering any questions, including “what is that hat made from?”

I hope you’ll come out and see us, or just to spend a nice day seeing the art exhibits and listening to the music. If you’re looking for a parking lot, we suggest going to the lot at Chocolate Avenue and Homestead Road and walking the block down to the site.
