On the Road Again
Friday, September 18, 2009
Hi everyone. Greetings from Dallas, Texas, where I am at the midway point in my "Marley Goes to School" tour. So far, it's been going great, I'm eating my vegetables, and enjoying meeting lots of new and really wonderful folks.
The tour began Monday with a 23-station radio satellite tour from home. Then Tuesday I flew to Atlanta and did an evening talk at a Barnes & Noble there, followed on Wednesday by appearances in two schools, one public, one private. Then I hopped on a plane for Houston, where I made stops at two more schools and at Brazos independent bookstore. This morning I caught a short flight to Dallas, where I spoke with 200 kids at St. Monica's Catholic School, and then gave a talk/reading/signing at a Borders store. Tomorrow I head for Denver, then Boulder and Seattle before heading home. To see when and where I'm appearing, please click the "events" tab on the top of this page.
Meanwhile, here are links to two media spots about Marley Goes to School. The first is from CNN, whose studios I stopped by while in Atlanta. The second is from the Dallas Morning News.
Now I'm off to sleep. Up before dawn tomorrow to catch my flight to Denver. If I'm going to be in your neighborhood, please stop in and say hello.
