UPCOMING EVENTS


So, hey — hi!

I did a TON of traveling in 2013, so 2014 will be a little calmer. But there’s still a good chance I’ll make it to your part of the country.

I’ll update this page as I confirm things. If you follow me on Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook, I’m usually pretty good at announcing things there …

If we’re going  to miss each other, but you’d still like a signed book, you can order a personalized copy of any of my books from my hometown bookstore, The Bookworm. Make sure to make a note of whom the book should be signed for.

LANDLINE LAUNCH – NEW YORK CITY
July 8, 2014

This is the first time I’ve had my launch party somewhere other than Omaha. Please come and pretend to be my friends and family. There will be copies of Landline! I will sign them!

Also, Barnes & Noble has a special edition of Eleanor & Parkfeaturing full-color fan art. Three of the featured artists — Simini Blocker, Andrea Porretta and Mina Price — will be at this event, signing books.
