I am writing a new book, and probably won’t be back here until it’s done.
If you like, you can follow me on Twitter.
I went to Calgary for less than 24 hours last week, and somehow this resulted in my book becoming a bestseller there. So there’s that.
I’m speaking in Calgary tonight. For some reason, the premier of Alberta is going to be there, and you should be too.
Tonight I’m speaking at the University of Connecticut. Come out and see me — and, um, go Huskies.
UPDATE: The Daily Campus reports.
Eventually, it had to happen. A couple weeks ago, I cut loose from the infamous Facebook page called “Shut Up, I’m Talking.” It no longer has any connection to me or my books, and anything you see coming from it has nothing to do with me all.
I have transferred control of the page, and its FIVE MILLION fans, to some young entrepreneurs who have done some really excellent work for charities in the past, and aim to use the page to further that sort of noble endeavor. I wish them luck.
This morning I was on an English-language radio show broadcast in Spain, talking to a Scottish host about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. You can find the result at http://www.talkradioeurope.com/, by clicking on the “Listen” tab, then choosing On Demand and the 11:00 AM show.
If you read one book this summer, make it Joseph Braude’s THE HONORED DEAD: http://josephbraude.com/ .
My latest piece for The New Yorker‘s Book Bench ran yesterday. It’s available here.
If you are one of the — no doubt, countless — people who have long dreamed of paying money to get all dressed up and have dinner with me, then February 10th is your chance.
Oh, and it’s for a good cause.
Just got the audio clip of me on VOICE OF AMERICA a few weeks back. I’m, you know, spreading democracy or something.
Clip (about halfway down the article) here.
