The big spring tour for Setting Free The Kites was epic and very fun and exhausting. After having the summer off, I’ve got a handful of additional appearances this fall. I’d love to see you if you’re anywhere near…

The Book Bin, Northbrook, IL, 3.00 p.m. and 5.00 p.m.

This is a popular event that the excellent independent bookstore The Book Bin puts on, combining wine tasting with an author talk. What’s not to like? There are two sittings, one at 3.00 and one at 5.00. It’s a ticketed event – details are here. These will be my only appearances in the Chicagoland area.
