Hey folks – The book tour is underway and things are going really well! We have packed them in in Syracuse, NYC, and Philly so far, and miles to go before we sleep. There are a bunch of events lined up from now thru February, but I wanted to let you know about the ones coming up soon. NYC Children: The 11/13 event at Hue-man is also my birthday, and I need you all to show up in full force! There is also an event on 11/17 which will feature some of the Black contributors to “Letters From Young Activists” at NYU, and that conversation is definitely going to be a scorcher! I hope to see you all soon!
