I'm leaving Miami for New York City today because (a) I am sick and tired of all this pleasant warm weather, and (b) I'm starting a book tour to promote my new collection of essays, You Can Date Boys When You're Forty, which is -- and I say this in all modesty -- the most recent book I have ever written.
On Thursday, March 6, I'll be in Washington, D.C., where at 1 p.m. I'll do an event at the National Press Club, and at 7 p.m. I'll be at Politics and Prose, whose website says, quote, "Beer and wine will be available." I think we can all agree that at that point we will need it.
On Saturday at 1 p.m. I'll be at the Costco at 17800 Congress Avenue in Boca Raton, where you can purchase my book as well as boxes of Milk Duds the size of a two-car garage. Saturday evening at 8 p.m. I'll do an event for my hometown bookstore, Books and Books, at the Coral Gables Congregational Church.
On Sunday I'll be home lying in bed whimpering and praying for clean underwear. Then on Monday, March 10, I'll be heading for Denver to begin the western leg of my book tour. You can find the rest of the appearance schedule here.
I won't be doing a lot of blogging for the next few weeks, but Judi has promised that she will try to do some if she's not too busy with her many other duties.
I hope to see some of you out on the road.
