Tour News, or, Why can’t you come to Monkey-Butt, North Dakota?

November 29th, 2008 · 23 Comments

Hey Kids, here’s the tentative schedule for my tour for Fool in February.

You know I think the world of you and would like to make peanut butter toast for each and every one of you (unless you have a peanut allergy, in which case, I’d like to make you toast and stab you in the leg with an epi pen.), but I don’t pick the cities and I can’t add cities because you ask, even if I want to.

And here is what’s confirmed, and the cities still to come:

Feb. 10: Books Inc., Opera Plaza, San Francisco CA
Feb. 11: Book Passage, Corte Madera CA
Feb. 12: Mysterious Galaxy, San Diego CA
Feb. 13: Barnes & Noble, Santa Monica CA
Feb. 15: Third Place Books, Lake Forest Park, WA
Feb. 16: University Bookstore, Seattle WA
Feb. 17: Powell’s, Portland OR
Feb. 19: Tattered Cover Lodo, Denver CO
Feb. 20: Boulder Bookstore, Boulder CO
Feb. 22: Bookpeople, Austin TX
Feb.23: Wordsmith, Atlanta GA
Feb. 25: Barnes & Noble, Lincoln Square, NYC

Still to be Confirmed: Chester County Bookstore, Philadelphia; Washington DC, Ann Arbor, Chicago, Minneapolis, Phoenix/Tempe, additional SF/Bay area appearances. I’m told they are working on some sort of Canadian tour, but I’ll believe it when I see it.

Details will follow soon. What normally happens — I talk for 30-40 minutes, take questions for 20 minutes or so, sign books until everyone gets their books signed. The signing policy varies for each bookstore, but usually I’ll sign as many books as you bring, but I can only personalize one or two due to time constraints. The bookstores usually ask that you buy at least one book at their store, though. (You’ll have to inquire about that. I’ll post the store addresses and phone numbers as the time approaches. ) If you’re a dealer or collector and you have a backpack full of books, I ask that you wait until everyone else has had their books signed.

Contest news coming up, but start thinking about your “most foolish picture of you and a Christopher Moore book”.

    Denver, wahoo! I will hold my nose (for lodo smells of urine), step over the homeless and get my very own copy of Fool signed. Mr. Moore, you will love Boulder it is 40 square miles surrounded by reality. (I think of it as San Francisco lite)

  • 6 Daniel // Nov 30, 2008 at 11:16 pm

    You’re coming to Atlanta! W00t!

  • 7 Sugar Ray Dodge // Dec 1, 2008 at 7:05 am

    I can be at either a Philly or DC showing. Hope that works out :)

  • 8 albertriehle // Dec 1, 2008 at 10:14 am

    Well lock that Chicago one down please! And you can definitely bring peanut butter and toast if you want!

  • 11 AngieBatgirl // Dec 1, 2008 at 6:49 pm

    I have my fingers crossed for Philly. Altho I’d risk NYC…*shudder*
    (no offense NYCers…but your traffic sucks)

  • 12 Amanda W // Dec 1, 2008 at 10:15 pm

    Bah! Of course you wouldn’t come to Dallas which is right next to me but never fear! I will find a way to make it to Austin! :) I’m excited

    And apparently I have to read King Lear now that I read the description of Fool…crap. Not everyone was in the honors english class and read THAT Shakespeare book! You make such trouble for me Christ Moore! XD

  • 13 Chelsea // Dec 1, 2008 at 10:20 pm

    Hope A squared (that’s Ann Arbor for all you non-Michiganders :-)) gets confirmed! I was at the signing for A Dirty Job a few years ago and I’d love to see you in person again!

  • 14 Sky // Dec 2, 2008 at 1:15 pm

    Sweet. I can soo hitch a ride up to Santa Monica! For sure! I really wish you had a singing in LA tho. But, Santa Monica is good.

    My “foolish” pic with one of your books will be awesome! I’m taking this photography class and I can do some pretty crazy stuff…

  • 15 Molly // Dec 4, 2008 at 12:58 pm

    Hope to see you in “Our Nation’s Capitol.” Really looking forward to the chance to have my books signed.

  • 16 Heather // Dec 4, 2008 at 4:50 pm

    Woot! I will see ya at Mysterious Galaxy!! 4th time. Does this mean I get a t-shirt this time??


  • 17 Ronni // Dec 8, 2008 at 7:00 am

    You should consider it a sign of how deeply I cherish your work that I am contemplating driving to Ann Arbor to see you. From just outside Columbus, Ohio. It’s not the distance … it’s just the well, you know, football loyalties and whatnot. I may have to drug my best friend (and OSU grad) to bring her along.

    Milwaukee! Harry W. Schwartz Bookshops!

  • 19 Erin // Dec 12, 2008 at 10:16 am

    I really hope you get to make it to DC as well! I would love to have you sign my book! You are one of my and my best friends favorite authors and we would love the chance to meet you!

    that excitement spilled over onto these pages (where i also did a lame LAMB review):

    sharing, not meant to plug but to show appreciation! see you in Feb!

  • 21 Brittany & Lauriane :) // Dec 19, 2008 at 9:36 am

    Canada! Come to Canada!

  • 22 Connie // Jan 10, 2009 at 6:28 pm

    Last time, a wicked snow storm kept you in Boston and out of Toronto….on Valentine’s Day! Boohoo!
    I, too, await a northern visit!

  • 23 Katrina // Jan 17, 2009 at 5:39 pm

    Sure… you go to Oregon AFTER I move back to Florida. Come get some sunshine… the real kind, not that surgically enhanced stuff they have in California.
