I have been too busy/nuts to sit down and really think about this fall. I have been avoiding any rational consideration of the fact that the calendar is finite.  LALALALALALALALALALALA!

But now it is hitting me that what I am about  to attempt  (in some cases with my kids in tow) is INSANE.  Here’s my schedule:

August 28-29 Suwanee Book Festival (Metro Atlanta)
September 3-5 Decatur Book Festival (Atlanta)
September 11 Lititz Kidlit Festival (Lititz, PA)
September 25 Midtown Festival of the Arts (Atlanta)
October 5-8 school visit (Pikesville, MD)
October 17, Jewish Books Council Event (DC)
October 22, Square Books Jr (Oxford, MS)
October 23 Lemuria Books (Jackson, MS)
October 31 Jewish Books Council Event (Denver, CO)
November 7 Jewish Books Council Event #1 (Detroit)
November 7 Jewish Books Council Event #2 (Detroit)
November 11 Jewish Books Council Event (Milwaukee)
November 14 Jewish Books Council Event (Atlanta)
November 19 Jewish Books Council Event (Virginia Beach)
November 19 Jewish Books Council Event (Bridgewater NJ)
November 21 Jewish Books Council Event (Louisville, KY)
December 6 Jewish Books Council Event (St Louis, MO)

The truly spectacular  day is November 19, when I somehow manage to be in Both Virginia and New Jersey.

A prediction:  by the time this is over I will have either gained or lost at least ten pounds. Yeesh!

A request: if you live in (or near) one of these places, come visit me. We can eat pizza in my hotel room or fall asleep on the lobby bar. Since that’s about all I’ll be good for.

    Wow, that is a really busy schedule! Best of luck with it, I hope it all goes smoothly. And I’ll watch my schedule as I get assigned projects, if I’m lucky maybe I can sleep in a lobby bar with you ;)
