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”.
