17 cities. Between October 17 and December 13. I'm ready. Headlong is more than ready. AND, we've got tour t-shirts. I'll be giving one away at each reading to the person who asks the best question (based on my totally subjective mood at the moment).
Hugely looking forward to meeting new friends, connecting up with old friends, and finding pie diners and strange tourist spots.
Most exciting part so far: in addition to bookstore, which I love visiting, I'm also looking to connect with colleges and high schools, to hear from students their take on the state of our society, their sense of what the fight for social change looks like. As part of that, I'll be visiting classes at Duke University and Medaille College this month at tour stops in Durham and Buffalo.
