I am so excited to share my new book, I’d Rather Be Reading, with you. I will be traveling all over but of course not to nearly as many places as I’d like to. I truly hope you can come see me at one of the events listed below. These events and a few others are still coming together so please keep checking back here for more details and additional events.

When: Sunday 9/2 – 6PM
