Crazy 8s Tour!

It’s a slightly nutty notion, so I thought, “What the hell.”

Shameless Self PromotionPromoter George Wright has created the “Crazy 8 Author Tour,” featuring eight award-winning Oregon authors who will each speak for eight minutes at eight venues around the state.

First up: 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24, in Loucks Auditorium at the Salem Public Library, 585 Liberty St. SE. I’ll be there with authors Ruth Tenzer Feldman, Lindsay Hill, Susan Hill Long, Ismet (Izzy) Prcic, Jody Seay, Alexis Smith and Christina Struyk-Bonn.

The idea: Each one of us introduces the next, then talks for, you guessed it, eight minutes regarding why we write. Books for all the authors will be on sale courtesy of The Book Bin, a really cool indie bookstore in Salem.

I’ve spoken at both the Salem Public Library and at the Book Bin in the past. Two great venues with great audiences.

This is going to be a blast!
