Meet local authors at Smoke Signals Oktoberfest tent

Murder, mayhem—and really good wine. Smoke Signals invites you to meet three of Big Canoe’s distinguished authors at its Oktoberfest booth on Saturday, Oct. 13. Times will be announced in the Wednesday, Oct. 10, Smoke Signals Weekly.

Retired surgeon Dr. Bill Booth, former Deputy Chief of the Los Angeles Police Department Lou Reiter and certified wine judge and scholar Wayne Crawford are looking forward to meeting you, talking about their work and signing/ selling books.

Wayne Crawford’s book, “Georgia Vineyards and Wineries,” is a historical guide to modern Georgia wines. The first comprehensive book on wines across the state covers the vineyards and wineries, great wines and range of grapes.

Dr. Bill Booth, a retired general surgeon from Baton Rouge, penned “Blood of a Stranger,” a novel filled with twists and turns after routine surgery leads to life-threatening danger—for the surgeon. His other books include “Down on Caddo,” a non-fiction collection of 32 mostly autobiographical short stories about the author’s life. “This Old House” contains 26 fictional short stories. The title story is about an elderly man who lives alone in his old home place against the advice of his children.

Former Deputy Chief Lou Reiter, Los Angeles Police Department, served with the Los Angeles Police Department for 20 years. Since retiring he audited the N.Y.P.D., served as a consultant for the U.S. Department of Justice, and testified as a police practices expert in over 1,100 civil lawsuits. He is the author of “Broken Badges: Cases from Police Internal Affairs Files” and “Shattered Badges: More Cases from Police Internal Affairs Files.”
