Back home in Mongolia...

Politics & Prose, Washington,
April 13, 2014
Well that went fast! The Great Pedestrianism Book Tour is over, and after seven events in seven cities, I am back home in Ulaanbaatar. The last event, last Thursday at the Mid Manhattan Branch of the New York Public Library, was taped for C-SPAN (air date to be determined). Many thanks to all my friends and family who helped make the book tour possible...

Failure magazine, a very fun online magazine, recently featured an interview with me that you can read here...

I am giving away five free copies of Pedestrianism through a Goodreads.com contest. The contest ends April 24. Click here to enter...

Now it's time to get to work on that Fido book!

On to Milwaukee...

Doylestown Bookshop,
Saturday, April 5, 2014.
That blue shirt is getting
quite a workout on this book tour.
It's been great to be back in Pennsylvania and see family and friends. The event last Saturday at the Doylestown Bookshop was a rousing success (in no small part because of my family and friends).

Tomorrow I fly to Milwaukee for an event Thursday night at 7 at Boswell Books. (Click here for details.) Please come if you can.
Great to meet Joe Smith,
one of my loyal fans,
at the Doylestown event.

Back in PA...

Oak Park Public Library, April 3, 2014
Things have been hectic, so I've been bad about blogging about the book tour. But last night's event at the Oak Park Public Library was fantastic. Many thanks to Debby at OPPL and Jason at the Book Table in Oak Park for making the event possible. Tomorrow (Saturday) I will be appearing at the Doylestown Bookstore in Doylestown, Pa. at 1 pm. Click here for details. Please come if you can.

Tonight at 7 at WORD Bookstore in Brooklyn

Elvis
(Update: The All Things Considered interview has been rescheduled for Thursday. April 3.)

The book tour is off to a great start! Yesterday my op-ed about pedestrianism was published in the Washington Post. (Click here to read it.) And I recorded an interview for All Things Considered that is scheduled to air on Thursday.

Also tonight, I will be appearing at WORD Bookstore in Brooklyn with Paul Lukas, who runs the fabulous Uni Watch blog. The festivities get underway at 7. Click here for all the details. It should be a lot of fun. I've been a fan of Paul's blog for many years, so it will be nice to finally meet him in person. We'll be talking about Pedestrianism and other fun stuff. If you're in the area, please come. If you're not, but know people in the area, please tell them about it!

On a personal note, the trip from Ulaanbaatar was long (middle seat for the 13-hour flight from Seoul to New York) but uneventful. I'm staying in a house in Brooklyn with a friendly cat named Elvis. That's him in the picture.

Tomorrow I'm off to Chicago and my event at the Oak Park Public Library on Thursday at 7 PM.

Walk on, everybody!

So beginneth the great Pedestrianism book tour...

Beer is good.
Here I am enjoying a beer in the departure lounge at Chinggis Khaan International Airport in Ulaanbaatar, waiting for my flight to Seoul (then on to New York). It's only been an hour since I left the house, and I already miss Allyson and Baby Z... So begins the great Pedestrianism Book Tour. My first event is in Brooklyn on Tuesday night. Here's the itinerary. Please come see me if you can...
