This will be my second official book signing and reading, with my wife, Theresa and I reading sections of my book and conducting lively question and answer sessions afterwards. If you missed the first reading, be sure to attend this one, in the heart of the North End. The first reading, March 6th, at the St. John's Booksellers was a resounding success with many people showing up, over 35, including two advocate's for the disabled. They interviewed me, for a newsletter they write and distribute. "Laddie" and "Todd" made numerous valid comments and asked questions about the disabled and police relations, which is an important and often overlooked issue. Thank you Laddie and Todd! We hope to see you at the second reading.

Behind the Badge in River City; A Portland Police Memoir, is a fascinating first-hand account of the Portland Police Department during the gritty 60's & 70's. DuPay's compassionate and insightful book paints compelling--and sometimes disturbing--portraits of a cop, a police department and a city.
