Author Fay Jacobs to appear at Browseabout Dec. 16 Local author and humorist Fay Jacobs' book "Fried & Convicted– Rehoboth Beach Uncorked" has just been named one of the top three LGBT Books of the Year for 2017 from the International Rainbow Awards. The annual contest included more than 400 books from all over the world, juried by 137 judges. Mainstream, independent and self-publishers all submitted entries. Jacobs, who is published by Bywater Books, received news of the award just in time for a planned book signing from 1 to 3 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 16, at Browseabout Books in down- town Rehoboth. "Fried & Convicted," Jacobs' fifth collection of essays from the publications Letters from CAMP Rehoboth and Delaware Beach Life, won the No. 3 spot for the top three LGBT books of the year from the Rainbow Awards. The author of four hilarious memoirs returns with more biting observations and laugh- out-loud dispatches from her life as a magazine scribe and sit-down comic. She takes on the absurdities of contemporary life from her Boardwalk bench in Rehoboth Beach. This time she's dealing with spinach as Big Brother, kayaking with alligators, the madness of miracle suits, a streaming pile of TV shows and breaking into show biz at an age she'd be more likely to break a hip. Previously, Jacobs has received awards from the American Library Association, the In- dependent Book Publishers Association, Foreword Maga- zine and Golden Crown Literary Society, plus induction into the Saints & Sinners Literary Hall of Fame. She has been writing her columns in Rehoboth for the past 22 years. Jacobs said "I'm stunned and thrilled to be recognized like this from the Rainbow Awards, espe- cially considering the number and caliber of entries. As for the book signing at Browseabout, I'm looking forward to being down- town at my favorite bookstore. After all, books do make great holiday gifts. And given the news these days, a gift of laughter for the holidays might be quite ap- preciated." For more information, go to Bywater Books.com, fayjacobs. com or browseaboutbooks.com.
