I'll be back in Philly for the steamiest month of them all and ready and willing to rock, read, or collapse at any venue in your jurisdiction. The Chestnut Hill Book Festival and Faber Books in 30th Street Station are stuck with me on July 9 and 8, but other dates around then are open if you need me. The Fees, Monsieur Finder and his lovely wife Madam Appearance have in fact strayed from my social circle, so I'm sure it won't be difficult for you and I to agree on a lovely moment together should such an opportunity present itself.
Here's the fully updated schedule for May through July:
April 30, Saturday, 1 to 3 p.m. (signing only), Books-A-Million, Anderson Shopping Mall, Anderson, SC
May 6, Friday, 7 p.m., City Lights Bookstore, Sylva, NC
May 7, Saturday, 3 p.m., Blue Ridge Books, Waynesville, NC
May 14, Saturday, 1 to 3 p.m. (signing only), Fiction Addiction, Greenville, SC
July 6, Wednesday, 6 p.m., Lucien E. Blackwell Regional Library, 52nd and Sansom, Phila., PA
July 8, Friday, 4 to 6 p.m. (signing only), Faber Books, 30th Street Station
(Faber has sold 29 copies of Fight for Your Long Day, emphatically crushing the competition and supporting John McNally's point that books are often best sold in locales where they take place. Alas, I can only dream that one day they'll have a book-trading annex in the men's room on the opposite side of the station.)
Chesnut Hill Book Festival
July 9, Saturday, 4:30 to 5:30 p.m., The Stagecrafters, 8130 Germantown Avenue
All of these, of course, are free and open to the public.
Thanks so much if one of them finds its way into your schedule.
