Writers may be able to work from home in their underwear, which is a pretty sweet deal, but they've also got to hit the road and promote their books and publications from time to time. This week there are a handful of such events in local libraries and bookstores. Jeffrey Lyons is the son of New York Post columnist Leonard Lyons, and he recounts his dad's life rubbing elbows with 20th century icons like Salvador Dali, Frank Sinatra and Ernest Hemingway in his book Stories My Father Told Me. He'll be appearing at the Greenwich Library. Mary Rose Scinto tells the story of the song "Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye" in her book of the same name, a tune recorded in Bridgeport and now ubiquitous at every sporting event in the country. She's stopping by the Bridgeport Library. Newbury Honor winner Joan Bauer speaks about her new children's novel Almost Home at the Fairfield U Bookstore and former Fine Gardening magazine managing editor Steve Silk talks gardening photography at the Westport Library.
