The Traveling and speaking begins. Come one, come all

I have a spate of speaking engagements coming up this summer and fall.  Here is a starter list.  I’d love to see any of you if you are somewhere nearby. I’ll also post more specifics as the dates get closer.  More may be added.  Keep an eye to the “Upcoming Events” box in the lower right corner of my home page for more specifics.  And should you be part of any group that would like to have me come and speak with you, or be present at a showing of the film of Neither Wolf nor Dog, get in touch and we can discuss arrangements.

Let’s start with my speaking tour through South Dakota to present on Neither Wolf nor Dog, which was chosen as the “One Book” selection for the entire state.  Events like these are hog heaven for me:  a rental car, cheap motels, intimate gatherings in mostly small towns, and friendly, face to face encounters.
