So if you're in the area, come on over to Longfellow Books at the center of Portland at 7pm. There will be a reception, talk, and signing, courtesy of Longfellow and co-hosts, the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance.
The first leg of the book tour continues in Newburyport, Falmouth, Boston and Beverly, Massachusetts; Greenwich, Connecticut, and Washington, DC, but more events in Maine and beyond are coming up.
Can't make the March 17 event? Good news: the Portland Press Herald, where I'm a staff writer, is hosting an American Character event at the Portland Public Library on March 30 at 5:30. Further details to follow.
Are you a Mainer who doesn't live near Portland? I'll be a guest on WCSH-6/WLBZ-2's "207" on March 14 and on MPBN's "Maine Calling" for the full noon hour on March 15.
