In Tucson for the Book Festival today

I landed in Tucson last night and man, it's summer here. What a nice time for a book festival. And I've only gotten to my hotel, but so far it's a very tranquil place. Such a different feel flying in from Manhattan.

I'm looking forward to a great day.

My panel this morning is 'Bringing Meaning out of Meaninglessness: How Literature Can Respond to the January 8th Shootings.' Roger Simon is the moderator, and lots of other great journos. It's 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM. Chemistry - Room 111. We'll all be signing books immediately after.

Tonight I'm also doing a Dart Society seminar to support local journalists who have been covering the tragedy. That should be really interesting, too. I hope coming out is helpful to them.

Thanks very much to Dart for sponsoring my trip, to make both events possible for me.


I will post more soon, and watch my facebook page for updates and pix. And I have so much to say about my wonderful week of high school visits about Columbine in Chicago and St. Louis last week.

(I signed a lease on a new place in Hell's Kitchen yesterday. It's been a frantic search. More on that soon, too.) .

And free Columbine Teacher's Guide here. And here is my Columbine Intro Video.
