On March 7, I leave the comfortable environs of Philadelphia to travel across the USA in my pajamas with Mac Barnett, talking about and writing our names in copies of Noisy Night, our book that is being released by Roaring Brook Press the same day.
The tour begins in Plainville MA, at An Unlikely Story. We make our way back down to Philadelphia on March 9 (my birthday!), where we’ll be at my home away from home, Childrens Book World, in Haverford at 4:30pm. On the evening of March 10, we’ll be at the Takoma Park Library in Takoma Park, MD. On March 11, we’re at Politics & Prose in Washington DC at 10am. We then leave the east coast and head to beautiful downtown Kalamazoo, MI, to Book Bug for an afternoon party. Lastly, we go way out west to Santa Cruz, CA, to the Bookshop Santa Cruz at 4pm for the final event of the tour. Since I love Santa Cruz, I’m staying a few extra days to ride bikes and eat tacos.
Hope to see your face along the way!
In about an hour or so I’ll be leaving for the Everything Goes By Sea book tour. I’m going to Washington DC, Alexandria VA, Raleigh NC, Chapel Hill NC, and Decatur GA, returning to Philadelphia next Saturday. I had a great time last year in Chicago IL and Oxford MS, and I suspect this time it’ll be just as interesting.
I noticed that I’m traveling via train, car, and airplane, so I suppose it’s sort of ironic that this is for By Sea. Of course, I lobbied for a cruise tour to Hawaii and the Caribbean, but I lost that fight.
