This April of 2012 I will be making three appearances in southern California. I will be talking about my new book Proving History at 7pm Monday night (April 23) in Ventura, for the Ventura Atheists (location requires joining their meetup group and RSVPing). I’ll be selling and signing copies of it there (I’ll have my other books on hand, too).
The preceding weekend (Saturday-Sunday, April 21-22) I’ll be at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books at USC (follow link for location and other details). I will be a featured author at the Atheists United table there (Why them? See below). My books will be sold the whole event long (until sold out), but I will also be there to sign books at some point (right now, my slot is looking like noon to 2pm on Saturday; if that changes I’ll update this blog, and post in the comments section). The booth is being shared in shifts by five or six authors all weekend. I might hang around some besides that, depends on if that’s practical, or if I get pulled away by other things. If you end up at the festival and I’m not at the booth you can always text me (determined fans can figure out where my number is) and ask whether I’m around.
And finally, the Friday night before that (April 20), Atheists United, who sponsored the grant that made Proving History possible, will be throwing a book launch party for me. This is invitation-only and hasn’t been officially announced anywhere; but if you want to attend, I’ve been authorized to issue invites, so you can contact me (see in comments below).
