Summer is just about here, and my paperback book tour is just about over, though I do have a little more fun happening in June—one event out of town and one here in Chicago. Next weekend is my talk for the Harford County Public Library in Maryland. It’s this Saturday at 6:30 pm at the branch in Bel Air. I’ll be talking about the book and my experiences for the Smithsonian Journey Stories. The event is free and open to the public. Then the following Friday, June 8th, I’ll be the author guest at the Much Ado About Tap Literacy Works fundraiser at the National Museum of Mexican Art here in Chicago. It starts at 6pm and there will be beer, dance, local food and more! You purchase tickets for this one, and it’s for a great cause.
After these, I may be doing an event here and there (including the authors’ reception at LauraPalooza 2012), but for the most part I’m looking forward to spending, with Chris, the first relatively laid-back summer we’ve had in years. See you at the beach! Or the beer garden. Or the drive-in. For once I have a bucket list that doesn’t involve a replica log cabin and I swear I don’t know what to do with myself.
