Hitting the road once again
Sunday, October 18, 2009
Tonight will be my last night sleeping in my own bed for a couple of weeks. I've been folding shirts and stuffing socks and t-shirts into my suitcase. And of course, cramming little 3 ounce bottles of toiletries into my TSA-approved one-quart clear plastic baggie. Yes, it's the main leg of my Longest Trip Home paperback-release tour!
In the morning, I catch a flight to Milwaukee where I will appear tomorrow night (Oct. 19) at Next Chapter Bookshop in Mequon, WI at 7 p.m. From there I fly to Chicago, and I will do a reading and signing at DePaul University Bookstore at 6 p.m. On Wednesday I hop down to Lexington, KY, for a 7 p.m. appearance at Joseph-Beth Booksellers. Thursday will find me in St. Louis where my 7 p.m. event will be at the Maryville University Auditorium.
I'm spending the weekend in St. Louis because I'm speaking at a private event on Saturday. Then on Sunday, I fly west where I have scheduled stops in Portland, Corte Madera, CA, and San Francisco. Then it's back east again to Grand Rapids, MI (my old stomping grounds), Boston, and Philadelphia (my current stomping grounds).
Whew! I think that about does it. To check my schedule and see if I'll be turning up somewhere near you, please click my events tab at the top of this page.
And now it's time to print out my schedule, pack up the laptop, and get some sleep. Book tour here we come! I'm really looking forward to talking about and reading from The Longest Trip Home.
Hope to say hi to you in person at one of my stops.
