Weekend links (and book tour updates!)

Also, if you haven’t yet seen, we’ve kicked off the 2014 podcasting season with a bang! January episodes include my conversations with Shauna Niequist, Shaun Groves, and Jon and Jenny Acuff. More fun stuff coming soon!

…and finally, I’m a new contributor to Storyline, so here’s my first contribution: thanking Walter Mitty for encouraging me to take more risks. (Remember, that’s my word for this year.)

February meet-ups!

I know many of you are anxiously waiting to hear where we’ll be in February, and I don’t mean to keep you in the dark—it’s simply that we’re still trying to iron out all the details. I promise to post dates, times, and locations for reader meetups as soon as I know them, but in the meantime, here’s what we do know:

February 6

Notes From a Blue Bike release party in Austin!

All are welcome to our book release party—including kids! Bring the whole family and enjoy appetizers, music, and mingling. Books will be available for signing, too! Mostly, I’d just love to say hi to you.

February 10, 2014

Bring the whole family after dinner, and let’s chat! Buy a drink to support this local business, and bring any books you might want signed. (I’ll even sign a book I didn’t write, if you want.) Should be fun and laid-back!

February 13

Another kid-friendly, all-are-welcome reader meet-up and book signing! Come hang out with me and my family and say hi, Georgians.

February 26

For this kid-friendly event, I’m teaming up with my friend Holley Gerth to celebrate the release of her book as well! Come say hi to both of us.

And in between all these and after, there will be more meetups, I promise. We’ve just gotta get the details ironed out, so thanks for your patience.

(In the meantime, anyone have suggestions for a meet-up space in either Charlotte, North Carolina or the NYC area? Those two locales are proving a bit difficult. We’re open to anything like an indie bookstore or coffee shop…)

    Awwww… Got excited about Atlanta, but Woodstock is so far on a school night. Sorry we will miss you! Congrats on your new “baby”!

  2. I’ll see you in Woodstock!

  3. Elizabeth says:

    I vote for 7th street market for your Charlotte meetup consideration. It’s a place my friends and I go to whenever we meet in the city. I think you’d like it: P.S. They have the best coffee (Not Just Coffee) in Charlotte – hands down.

  4. I would totally come to Woodstock since I live there, but I won’t be in town that night :(. I did let my book club friends know about it though!

  5. Look up Amelie’s for Charlotte!

  6. I’m still crossing my fingers for a Nashville meet-up. The Well Coffeehouse would be perfect. xo

  7. Oh I wish, I wish that I could click my heels like Dorothy and be transported back home to Austin for your book release party there! Hope you have fun.

  8. I keep forgetting to ask you – when you do India on your trip, are you going to Delhi? If so, I’d love to mail you some copies of the book I wrote (Delhi Bound : for kids)

  9. If only you would come to Cleveland, Ohio!

  10. So excited for your book tour journey! I reallllly hope you’re still coming to Dallas. (I live in Fort Worth). I don’t have any contacts in Dallas for a meet up, but I know of a quirky coffeehouse in an old church building here in Fort Worth, if you’re still game to come our way! Hoping to see you on your tour – thanks for all of the inspiration you give me through your books, blog and podcasts!
