|Greg & Donna: Summer stock '89|
No...Barbara Streisand and Ryan O'Neal are not taking to a ring this time, but I'm taking to the road with my friend Donna like the characters in Patchwork and sharing my books with people in vacationland. For those that have followed my blog all through my own journey of chicken boy...they know how that book is based on my godson. Well, Donna is his mom. And the two of us met doing summer stock in Maine in the summer of '89. (She actually picked me up in NYC having never met and the two of us made the 7-8 hour car trip and quickly had to get to know each other.) So I'm really excited she can join me and assist me on this mini-book tour weekend.
I also just love that state and how relaxing it can make you feel in summer. Obviously, we are going to 'work' - but book tours are less about work and more about meeting new people. Patchwork of Me has strong ties to that state as Sara travels from Arizona to Maine to confront her past. And I can't go anywhere now without sharing my children's book on autism awareness. So I'm eager to sign copies of both.
I'm also so appreciative of Connie at Bath Book Shop, Belinda at the Freeport Library, and Crystal and all those at Tugboat and her sister Inns for hosting me at the start of the 50th Annual Windjammer Days Festival in the town the book is set.
Can't wait to visit each of those places!
