Atlantis Rising Tour – Festivals, Book Stores, and an Old English Village

by | Oct 24, 2013 | Blog, Books, Events, News

Today’s post comes to you from charming Oxford, England where I’m enjoying a rare, clear evening! The last few weeks have been hectic, to say the least, but I’m excited to be back in Oxford and to be a part of the TORCH-Smith School Symposium on humanities and the environment. While I’m here, I also hope to grab a pint at my favorite pub, the Eagle and Child (which locals call the Bird and Baby) – the same pub where J.R.R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis often clinked glasses and discussed mythic world affairs.

One of my first stops last week was at the Southern Book Festival in Nashville, TN — one of my favorite book festivals anywhere. These folks just LOVE stories! I love seeing families together at these festivals, too. Afterwards, I visited a few more cities in the US, bookended by presentations at the Southern Festival of Books and the Tweens Read festival in Houston, TX. I had some great school visits along the way, too! Here are some of the highlights:

Next I visited a great middle school in Charlotte, NC, where I was greeted by a famous pirate! Arrrrg!

And met this family of devoted readers at Park Road Books in Charlotte, too.

Here’s a picture from the Chester County Book Company during my presentation. And talking with a family afterwards – I’m just about to sign their book!

After this week’s presentation in England, I head back to Colorado to catch up with my family before heading out for a few more weeks of events, listed below. I’ll be sure to update you on those dates again as they get closer. If I’ll be visiting a location near your home, please join me! I’ve said it before, but it’s true – I love connecting with my fans!
