I like it when bands name their tours, like Dylan’s Why Do You Look At Me So Strangely Tour in 1992, or They Might Be Giants’ Don’t Tread on the Cut-up Snake World Tour, also in 1992, or Guided by Voices’ Insects of Rock Tour in 1994.* So I’ve decided to give a name to my upcoming book tour. It’s going to be called The Uncaged Tour. (Actually, the full, official title is The Uncaged Tour of the Americas 2014.)
Here are the dates so far, with links to more information:
Sept. 30: New York: The Glass Cage: Nicholas Carr in Conversation with Tim Wu (92nd St Y event)
Oct. 1: Washington, DC: Politics and Prose
Oct. 2: Cambridge, MA: Harvard Book Store
Oct. 6: Seattle: Town Hall Seattle
Oct. 8.: Mountain View, CA: Authors at Google
Oct. 8: San Francisco: Commonwealth Club (with Andrew Leonard)
Oct. 14: Boulder, CO: Boulder Book Store
Oct. 16: Calgary: Wordfest
Oct. 17: Salt Lake City: Utah Book Festival
Oct. 23: Denver: Tattered Cover Book Store
Oct. 25: Boston: Boston Book Festival
Nov. 5: Boulder, CO: Chautauqua
I hope to see you at one of the events.
Now I’m off to design the official tour t-shirt.
