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.)
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:
- Austin, Texas
- Palm Door
- 5-7 p.m.
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
- Houston, Texas
- Agora Café
- 6:30-8:00 p.m.
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!
- Atlanta, Georgia
- FoxTale Book Shoppe
- 6:30 p.m.
Another kid-friendly, all-are-welcome reader meet-up and book signing! Come hang out with me and my family and say hi, Georgians.
- Rogers, Arkansas
- Barnes & Noble
- 5 p.m.
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…)
