THE GREAT AMERICAN “FED, WHITE, AND BLUE” BOOK TOUR 2015
My latest book “Fed, White and Blue” which catalogues my journey to American citizenship through extraordinary food experiences, will be published by Hudson St. Press on April 7th 2015.
To celebrate its publication, and to hopefully connect with even more of my new fellow countrymen, my lovely wife and I shall be heading out on a major road trip around the United States of America. This will not be any ordinary book tour, however. Just as I did with the research trip for the book itself, we are looking for invitations.
I really want and need people to help us set up book signings, readings and events in their towns and cities. As well as returning to major cities and to many of the wonderful places I visited on my initial journey, we also want to hit some of those places less visited, the heart and soul of this splendid country, the places that really deserve their own moment in the spotlight (or deserve to suffer a visit from me, depending on how you look at it)
This will not be a big P.R. organized event. The “Fed, White, and Blue Book Tour 2015 will consist of just me, my wife, a rental SUV and a U-haul truck filled with books and cooking equipment as we travel the country looking to encounter the best people, the best places and the best food to share with our new friends.
These events could be in book clubs, schools, church groups, libraries, at farmers markets, local food festivals or BBQ and other cooking events. They could be on farms, in breweries, at tailgate parties or in restaurants and bars and they could be with ten people or a hundred people.
We are working on the itinerary as we speak, but if you have any ideas, we’d love to hear from you. You can contact us either through the contact form on this website or through the dedicated e-mail for the trip (firstname.lastname@example.org).
And, if you have a really great idea, you may well find me preparing a delicious meal for you and your friends and family by way of thank you.
We are already receiving plenty of offers of sponsorship to cover the cost of the journey, but if you know of anyone who may be interested in offering a floor to sleep on along the way or may be interested in helping towards the cost of car hire, ingredients, gas etc, we’d love to hear from them too. It not, it would be great if you could at least share this post with your friends.
We are both hugely excited about this trip, and we hope some of you will be too. So, I really look forward to hearing from you.
