I'm humming the John Denver tune today, "I'm leaving on a jet plane… dum dee dah dah…"
At 4:30 today I depart Philadelphia to begin my six-days on the road (In the Air!) promoting Everything Goes. I'll be going to Naperville and Winnetka IL, Oxford MS, Chapel Hill NC, and Arlington VA.
Before you get all excited and go camp out at your bookstore to wait, I should mention that only two of these stops, Oxford and Chapel Hill, are going to be public bookstore events. The others are school appearances and a booksellers conference. But here are the details of the two bookstore events.
On Friday, September 28, I'll be at Square Books Jr. in Oxford, MS for a 4:00pm event. Square Books Jr. is at 111 Courthouse Square Oxford, Mississippi 38655. I have a friend here in Philly that tells me that Oxford is a great little town and Square Books is a great shop, so I'm really looking forward to this.
On Saturday, September 29 I'll be at Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill, NC at 12:30pm. Flyleaf is at 752 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd (Historic Airport Rd), Chapel Hill, NC 27514
The other stops on the tour are going to be big school events hosted by Anderson's Books in Naperville, The Bookstall in Winnetka, and the New Atlantic Independent Booksellers Association conference in Arlington VA. I attended last year's conference in Atlantic City and it was terrific, so I'm pleased that they asked me back this year.
Stay tuned for some missives from the environs.
