A Note About Book Clubs:

I’m so delighted that many of you have chosen The Worst Best Man as a book club selection! If you’re interested in having me attend all or a portion of your book club’s discussion, either in person (for local clubs after pandemic restrictions have been lifted) or via Skype (for long distance clubs), please feel free to reach out to me via the contact information here on the site. Also, it’s perfectly fine if you don’t want me there at all!

A Note About Covid-19:

We’re in the midst of unprecedented times. Business cannot and should not go on as usual. Numerous in-person events have been canceled, and some events will be rescheduled. I will try to update this page as event organizers work out if and how to rework their programming plans. In the meantime, I hope you and yours are safe.
