My Kind of Town(s)

Given my recent luck with delays and canceled flights, I can't say I'm looking forward to heading off to LaGuardia Airport on Thursday. But I am excited about my destinations.

On Friday, I'll be signing books at the annual convention of the National Council of Teachers of English, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. I've also been invited to be on a panel Saturday morning with several other authors. Our topic: "Books on Families and the Peer Cultures of Our Times." It's been awhile since I've had to answer questions from an English teacher, never mind a room full of them. But I'm really looking forward to it.

After the panel, it's up to Milwaukee for an afternoon (2pm) reading and signing at the one and only Boswell Book Company. If you're in the area, please come by! It's a great indie bookstore.

Unfortunately, I'm flying back to LGA that night, so I won't have time to to re-discover some of the beers that made Milwaukee famous... unless, of course, there's another delay or cancellation.


  1. From one of your audience members at Boswell's today: Thank you!!! You are an understated and delightful spokesman for Bill Warrington, and I'm rushing through my obligations to begin reading his story tonight. Hope you had safe travels home.

  2. Thanks so much, Judi. I enjoyed meeting you and "talking books." Made my way back to the airport via the lakefront--very pretty! Thanks again for coming to the reading. I hope you enjoy BWLC. All best.... Jim
