Guys, Dave has been gone for a week (HE GETS BACK TODAY) and I’ve eaten an unseemly number of ice cream bars in his absence. (N.B.: thanks for all your ice cream recommendations, Tumblr!) I missed him.

But! I have quite a few more book tour dates coming up, so I guess I will be the one abandoning him, pretty soon. I already posted these once, but since a Seattle date has been added (and in the interest of having someplace to point people for the info), here are all the places and times you can come here me read from The Daughters  in the next couple of months:

(NOTE: I’ve never been to New Mexico, so if anyone has recommendations about where I should eat, or if you want to come see me & maybe eat something with me [ice cream!] afterwards, please let me know!)
