PBS NewsHour, July 29, 2011

Watch the full episode. See more PBS NewsHour.

Here I am discussing The President Is a Sick Man with Ray Suarez on the PBS NewsHour last Friday. And in case you missed it, the website recently gave the book a very lengthy (and positive) review. Click here to read it. More updates from Ulaanbaatar coming soon!

We arrived in Ulaanbaatar late Thursday night. The kitties were on the same flight (they had been shipped separately from Washington). Our apartment is great! We don't have Internet yet, so I can't go into much detail, but it suffices to say that we are well and happy. The photo above was taken yesterday (Saturday, July 23) in front of one of the Buddhist temples in UB...

Longellow Books, Portland, ME, 7 PM Tuesday

Crazy week. Left DC for Maine last Friday but unexpectedly had to fly back to DC yesterday to do something for the book. Tomorrow (Tuesday, July 19) I will be back in Maine to do a reading at 7 PM at Longellow Books in Portland (click here for details). I hope to see a lot of familiar faces there! Then... early Wednesday morning... we fly out of Portland for Ulan Bator - via Detroit and Seoul. Should be quite the adventure!!

Many, many thanks to the National Museum of Health and Medicine for organizing such a wonderful event in Silver Spring. More than 50 people attended!

National Museum of Health and Medicine

I'm really looking forward to tonight's event for the National Museum of Health and Medicine in Silver Spring, Maryland (just outside Washington). (Click here for details.) The museum has slides with samples of Grover's tumor!

The movers came yesterday and packed up our stuff. Now we're living out of suitcases until we get to Ulaanbaatar. We leave Washington on Friday for Maine. We leave portland for UB on the 20th - a week from tomorrow. Hard to believe!
