Jesus Cow Tour Summary (including West Coast)

Howdy folks. Book tour ramping up. Over the next few weeks I’ll be in River Falls, WI; St. Paul, MN; La Jolla, CA; Encinitas, CA; San Francisco, CA; Seattle, WA; Portland, OR; Naperville, IL; Decorah, IA; Iowa City, IA; Madison, WI; Oconomowoc, WI; Milwaukee, WI; and Marshfield, WI. Dates and details right here on the Events page. We built and maintain this thing one reader at a time, so if you know anyone (especially on those West Coast stops) who might enjoy a book reading that’s really more like a humorous yapping session, please let’em know. 2 people or 200, they all get the same show, but it’s always fun to have more full chairs than empty. And above all: THANK YOU.
