Hello friends -
I just wanted to give you a heads up and plenty of time to mark your calenders with some upcoming appearances occurring in April.
First off, I will be making up the prior-postponed Enoch Pratt Free Library from earlier in January. The new date will be April 1st. (This isn't an April Fools Joke.)
For those in Maryland that can't make it to Baltimore, I will be appearing at the Key School Annapolis Book festival on April 5th.
And for my New England fans, I will be at the Norwich Bookstore (http://norwichbookstore.com/) on April 9th.
More information, including times, addresses, and more information about each event will come in the coming weeks, but mark your calenders now for these exciting events!

Sorry to disappoint you all and hopefully I will have an update on some near-future events, especially in the Washington and Baltimore area.
Also be prepared for some upcoming announcements on events coming in Spring 2014!
