  1. Bummer, no west coast gig! I’d really like to get you two out with Randy Olson for a kick-butt show!

  2. Shelley Gordon

    Darn! Nothing in or near Chicago!

  3. Chris Mooney

    I’d love to come to the Chicago area again (was at Northwestern in July) if something were to come open…

  4. Gaythia

    And we can’t entice you to travel out west?

  5. Seems likely we’ll hit Chicago sometime later this year.

  6. Chris Mooney

    we love to hear invitations, and then we see what we can do.

  7. Glad you’ll be getting out there again. Let me know if you get to Europe.

  8. Michal

    I would be great if you could hit New Mexico on your way west if something there were arranged.
    We often get forgotten here!

  9. Frank Rivera

    No love for the west coast. I loved your book! Please try to get us on your schedule next time.

  10. Chris Mooney

    I would love to swing through new mexico, california, portland and seattle…but, it just isn’t set up at this time. Hopefully something will come up…it is not clear yet whether there will be another official book tour for Unscientific America in paperback. That decision is not yet made, but is probably unlikely.

    Feb 8th in Bethesda? Arrrgh – I have an all-day meeting that day, and I’m speaking around the same time you are (to a much smaller and more specialized audience). Can’t you get a book signing in the area that evening? Maybe I can wrangle an invitation up the road in Frederick – my wife works at a B&N there.
