I’ve been furiously updating my Google calendar to add new book-related events to promote my memoir, Uncomfortably Numb (released on March 3).
Here’s a list of what I have scheduled thus far:
Book launch: March 7, 1-3 p.m., Tatnuck Bookseller, Westborough, MA
My first event for Uncomfortably Numb is a March 7 book talk and signing at Westborough, MA’s independent bookstore, 18 Lyman Street, Westborough.
The event runs from 1-3 p.m. Light refreshments will be available.
I’ll be collecting donations for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Book talk: March 26, Northborough, MA Lyceum
I have been invited to talk about the impact the Southborough middle school music program had on two of my children as chronicled in my 2017 nonfiction book, Mr. Clark’s Big Band: A Year of Laughter, Tears & Jazz in a Middle School Band Room.
The book examined how a larger-than-life music teacher helped his grieving students in a small Massachusetts town find strength and peace through the creative expression in their music and the camaraderie of the band room.
The talk — whose details are still being worked out — will take place in Northborough, MA.
Book talk/signing: March 28, 1 p.m., Barnes & Noble, Holyoke, MA
I will be heading back to western Massachusetts — where I grew up and went to college — to promote Uncomfortably Numb at the Barnes & Noble, 7 Holyoke Street, Holyoke, MA (near the Holyoke Mall).
The event begins at 1 p.m.
I will be collecting donations for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Book talk/signing: April 9, 7 p.m., Southborough Public Library, Southborough, MA
I will be discussing why I wrote Uncomfortably Numb and will read aloud from the memoir at the Southborough Public Library, 25 Main Street, Southborough.
The event starts at 7 p.m.
I’m working on scheduling other events and will post them when plans are nailed down.
