Occasionally, when I'm lucky or when my publisher is feeling generous, I get to go around to conferences and bookstores and colleges and book groups and talk to people who like to read. It's one of my favorite things to do. Below you'll find a list of these events, which will be posted here as they are scheduled. Hope to see you at one of them!

(If you'd like to schedule something, whether in person or via Skype, please see the contacts page.)
