The Uncaged Tour


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.

    “The Uncaged Tour” : funny. However no Eastern Canadian dates! And for your tour, you can have a neon sign saying “The Cage is Open.” Of course, this is a tip of the hat to Guided By Voices…..

    Many, many stops near good fly fishing water. Well done!

    Given the Snowden revelations, this might be appropriate: The “Your Cage Is Ready For You” Tour.
