Two exciting events to tell you about, one in my home market and another teaming up (again) with my friend and fellow author Richard King.
I’ll go chronologically.
This is great news for those who were unable to come out to see Rich and me at Trident Booksellers & Cafe November 3.
Rich and I will be reading, speaking and signing our respective books on Saturday, November 21 at Yellow Umbrella Books in Chatham, Mass. So there’s your excuse to spend a nice fall afternoon on Cape Cod.
If the Trident event set the tone, we’ll get a nice conversation going between me and Rich. I’ll talk about Patriots history and read from The New England Patriots Playbook. Rich will be talk about, and read from, his fantastic memoir, Meeting Tom Brady. We’ll do some Q&A. And we’ll sign books.
And, you know, as I’ve said before, come out even if you’re not a Patriots fan — or even a sports fan.
Why? Well, first of all Meeting Tom Brady is not a sports book. It’s not really even a book about being a sports fan, though it sometimes masquerades as one. It’s a book about facing middle age and mortality. It’s about wanting to understand oneself and ones passions. About allowing oneself to want something even as you try to understand your own desires. Rich is a terrific writer and he’s published a really fine book. So if you like that kind of thing, you know, you should come out.
And if you don’t love good writing, and you’re not a sports fan, you should still come out. Because the holidays are coming and I’ll bet you’ve got at least one Patriots fan on your gift list. As you may have heard me mention once or twice, a signed book makes a great gift.
A week after that, I’m down the street from home at Barnes & Noble, Hadley. That’s Saturday, November 28 at 2 p.m. I’m always excited to do an event in my home market. Love that I get to see friends. Love that I get to meet Patriots fans from Western Mass.
Break away from whatever it is you’ve got going on that afternoon and stop by to say hello, talk Pats, and pick up signed copies of Playbook and Tom Brady vs. the NFL for yourself and your favorite Patriots fans.
