Louis Anthony Agnello Jr., “Cousin Vinny”, will be in Independence on July 27 promoting his debut book, “The Devil's Glove”, from 1 to 3 p.m. at Barnes & Noble, 19120 E. 39th St. in Independence.

In the book, a down-and-out baseball player unwisely seeks help from the Devil to make it into the big leagues. While Satan promises him success, in the form of a magic glove, what he wants in return is his soul.

His novel is a book of enlightenment for the troubled and addicted souls of this world. He will share his insight at the book signing and will be doing a meet and greet with photo opportunities.

He will discuss how he created a public mystique and how he has taken his former notoriety as the “Stripper King of New York” and the “King of Bling” and transformed it into a nationwide opportunity to spread decent Christian values.
