Look out Norfolk, San Diego, St. Louis, San Francisco, Dayton, Indianapolis, Galesburg, Muncie, etc., here I come!

I’m speaking all over the place this spring — east coast, west coast, and middle coast! If I’m in your neighborhood, come see me or meet me for a fair trade coffee or whatever.

I’m looking forward to criss-crossing the country several times to share the stories of the folks I’ve met on my travels. If you’re interested in having me speak to your conference, university, school, or event, check out my speaking page.

April 7: Literary Festival Norfolk, VA. Details TBD.

April 10-11 Erma Bombeck Humor Writers’ Workshop

I’ll be leading the following session twice on Saturday morning.

Writing Nonfiction: Connecting People Through Stories

Writers of creative nonfiction explore truths through verifiable facts, shaping the narrative using the same tools as writers of fiction: scene, pacing, setting, characterization, etc. Students will be introduced to these elements and given the opportunity to use them in their own writing and share them in the class.

 I’ll be hanging out Thursday night, Friday morning, and maybe Friday night for the book signing.  I wish I could stay for the whole thing, but my schedule gets nuts, as you’ll see if you keep reading.


April 11 @ 1:30: Cristo Rey High School, Indianapolis, IN

April 12 San Diego, CA. Details TBD.  

April 16 Ball State University (My hometown!!)

I’ll be speaking in Pruis hall about EATING? which was used as Ball State’s sophomore read this year.

April 17 Tarrant County College @ noonish, somewhere on campus

They used EATING as a common reader. I speak at noon.  Check out this cool Prezi they made to promote the book:

April 23 St. Louis Community College Saint Louis, MO, details TBD

Another return visit. It’s always nice to know that I left a good impression. I enjoyed interacting with the very engaged students at STLCC. 

April 25 Menlo School Atherton, CA

I spoke hear a few years ago about WEARING and I’m thrilled to be heading back to interact with high school and junior high students over the course of the day.  Last time one of the students thought her “great-grandfather or something started Levi’s.”  The school has fake grass!

April 26 5:30 – 8:00 PM  “Project Hope & Fairness Fundraiser” at Pear Valley Winery in Paso Robles, CA

Tom Neuhaus of Project Hope & Fairness played a prominent role during my experiences in Ivory Coast while writing EATING.  This event is awesome. Besides raising awareness about the plight of cocoa farmer in Ivory coast we’ll be raising glasses and oodles of good food and chocolate to our mouths.
