Postcards I sent the boys from the Keep Going tour. (I missed several cities.)
Here I am enjoying a celebratory Butterfinger Blizzard at a Dairy Queen in Iowa City.
Hours before, a tornado touched down outside of town, delaying our talk by 10 minutes while folks temporarily retreated to the basement of Prairie Lights.
I had wondered if the end of the tour would be anticlimactic. It was not.
All I wished for at the beginning was to stay healthy and safe and not have any total duds.
My wish was granted.
Thanks to everyone who came out and made it happen. (And thanks to Matt Thomas for taking this picture.)
My biggest tour ever. Two months. 25 cities. See all the dates here.
Couple of things:
1) I’m pumped about how eclectic the mix of venues is: Indie bookstores. Public libraries. A brewery. A movie theater. Even a Methodist Church! So fun. I also have an amazing batch of people interviewing me on different stops, including Heather Havrilesky, Chase Jarvis, and Debbie Millman.
2) It might look random, but my publicist at Workman (shoutout to Diana!!!) worked tirelessly on this lineup. Planning a tour like this is months and months of work. (A lot of it not even visible to me.)
3) The 25-cities-in-North-America constraint is due to budget and my physical and mental health. If your city was left out of, it’s nothing personal!
And yes, I would love to come to your city, but I’m one person with a young family. They need me, and I need them. I’m already an absentee dad for two months. Gimme a break.
If you really, really want me to come to your city, scrounge up a budget from your employer or school and check out my speaking page.
Hope to see y’all soon!
