Also, their show has been extended through March 2.
In Chicago. Signing books before breakfast. Cannot hear chickens, can hear people talking eagerly about books, so that’s a fair trade. Here to say thank you for this.
Meant to post this during the recently concluded book tour (or terrr) as we are wont to say hereabouts.
Chapter Six of Visiting Tom includes the story of how this house went from this moment:
To this moment:
The Visiting Tom virtual book tour continues. Today I thank “Read. Write. Repeat.” I especially appreciate the attempt to explain nonfiction memoir, something I struggle to do myself before folks’ eyes glaze over. Just because it’s nonfiction doesn’t mean it has to read like the dictionary (and I say that as a fan of the dictionary).
I’m headed home after the “meatspace” book tour for Visiting Tom, but there’s another “virtual” tour that still continues online. Thank you to all sites who have participated so far:
More stops to come…
Five weeks on the road and now I head home. So many thank-yous owed. So grateful for every friendly face, handshake, kind word, the number of people who rearranged their day to include me.
Sitting in the San Francisco airport, waiting for a plane, working on the next book manuscript. So I can do this all again.
Thank you. And thank you to the little crew at home. This is a team sport.
In Visiting Tom I write about going over to his place to saw lumber. These photos are from that day (taken mostly by my buddy Mills). Some of the photos correspond to pages in the book (see captions for specific page number).
