From Houston to New Orleans to Miami to Pass Christian, Mississippi... I'll be covering a lot of ground this summer to talk about the new book. I can now officially anounce the first dozen or so of what will hopefully be many more public presentations across the country--mostly in hurricane vulnerable regions of the Gulf and East Coasts. The gory tour details are now available here (a stopgap location until the official Storm World website is ready to go). For the blog, meanwhile, I will merely list, in chronological order, the cities I'm currently scheduled to visit to talk about hurricanes and global warming (assuming no storm distrupts everything, of course):
June: Grand Rapids, MI (an early preview talk for the Freethought Association; the book is not actually in stores until July 9).
July: New York, Raleigh, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa, Pass Christian, New Orleans, Houston, Washington D.C., Boulder, Denver (largely bookstore stops).
August: Chicago (possible/probable, as part of Yearly Kos 2007) There are some new stops for me here, especially Pass Christian, which has probably been the most hurricane-ravaged location in the U.S. in modern times: It got slammed by both Camille in 1969 and Katrina in 2005. The store where I'll be speaking, Pass Christian Books, has only recently been rebuilt...Katrina destroyed it. I hope to catch many of you folks in these cities. And there will be more news about Storm World soon enough....
