Coming Home

Since the release of Cheeseland at the end of May, I have done a radio tour that covered 14 states and made personal appearances at a dozen bookstores and libraries across Chicagoland. It has been a fun ride. But all rides must come to an end. As I look at my upcoming schedule, I have no more radio interviews and only one more personal appearance. Fittingly, that one appearance is back at home, at the Evanston Public Library, where I'll be reading at 6:30 pm, Thursday, Jan. 24. I can't think of a better place to park this book. 

As a warm-up to Thursday's reading, the Evanston library interviewed me about the inspirations behind Cheeseland, my work on behalf of the Chicago Writers Association, and some of my favorite reads of 2012. Read the interview here, and then come by the library on Thursday for more.

Oh, and if that's not enough to whet your appetite, here's another interview I did recently with Hypertext Magazine
