Come on out and hear a reading, ask all your questions, meet the author, get your book signed!

Who wants to be stuck inside on a frigid January or February Minnesota day? A warm, cozy book event sounds like a great reason to brave the chill.

I’d love to see you, from Alexandria to Minneapolis, St. Paul to Austin, here are some of the places I will be in January and February, 2020.

I’m coming to Minnesota because of the darn cancer that just won’t go away. I have several doctor’s appointments already booked and my goal is to have MORE book events than I have medical events.

I want the distraction and the joy, to not think about cancer and treatment. If you have a group that would be interested in hearing about Stronger than Death (or my other books: Finding Home: Third Culture Kids in the World, the Djiboutilicious Cookbook, and Welcome to Djibouti), or about writing, expatriate life, etc, get in touch and let’s plan something.


Here is where I’ll be, some times are TBD (and I will update as events get added)

Thursday, January 16 at Bethlehem Baptist Church, Sojourner’s group

Sunday, January 19 at The Irreverent Bookworm, 10:00-3:00. What a great name for a bookstore. Seriously. I love it.

Friday, January 24 at Eat My Words, 7:00 pm (these bookstore names, aren’t they just wonderful?)

Saturday January 25 at Sweet Reads in Austin, Minnesota, time TBD (Candy and books?! Does it get any better?)

Thursday January 30 at Subtext Books, 7:00 pm

Saturday, February 1 at Cherry Street Books in Alexandria, Minnesota, 1:00-2:30 pm.
