I'm doing a speedy and sweeping race across the USA to coincide with Disney Hyperion's release of The Pearl Thief on 2 May 2017. Here are the scheduled events so far:
Tuesday, 2 May 2017, 7 p.m.: Politics & Prose, 5015 Connecticut Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20008. Details here. This is The Pearl Thief's book birthday, so this will sure feel like a launch party to me!
Thursday, 4 May 2017, 7 p.m.: Anderson's Bookshop, 123 W. Jefferson Ave., Naperville, IL 60540. Details here.
Friday, 5 May 2017, 7 p.m.: The Book People, 603 N. Lamar Blvd., Austin, TX 78703. Details here. There is a form on this site for ordering signed copies of the book even if you can't attend.
There's also a blog tour coming up from 1-5 and 8-12 May 2017 - details to be announced.
And finally, there's a launch in Perth on Thursday 18 May 2017 for the Bloomsbury release of The Pearl Thief, which is out on 4 May 2017. I'll be speaking at the Perth Museum on a panel together with Jess Smith, storyteller and outstanding advocate for the Traveller community in Scotland, and Gavin Lindsay of the Perth & Kinross Heritage Trust. You can register to attend this event here.
