July Appearances: California for chocolate and wine, Indiana for writing friends and libraries

Summer is a time of rest, bike rides, backyard pools, and teaching my 4-year-old daughter to rider her bike without training wheels (on Father’s Day! I won Father’s day!).  But I love summer events.  They tend to be more intimate and laid back.

Here are my July Appearances

July 20 – Paso Robels, CA: Project Hope & Fairness Fundraiser at Pear Valley Vineyards. Wine and chocolate? Yes please! I traveled with Tom Neuhaus of Project Hope and Fairness in Ivory Coast while researching WHERE AM I EATING? Happy to help them raise money to improve the lives of cocoa farmers in West Africa.

July 22 – Columbus, IN: Batholomew County Library.  Love visting libraries and happy they are having me back to talk about EATING after I spoke there about WEARING a few years back.  Re-invite: the highest form of flattery!

July 25 – 27: Midwest Writers Workshop. This is my writing family. If you haven’t signed up yet, it’s too late. We sold out our 40th anniversary weeks ago.  I’ll be emceeing, running a session, buttonholing (don’t ask), and anything else that Jama Kehoe Bigger asks me to do.

So my summer isn’t too busy, thankfully after last years EATING travels, but all of the above occur in one week.  Should be a fun week!
