The Monsoon Book Tour, Fall 2019

Monsoon Postcards cover image.jpg

It’s monsoon season in South Asia. India’s parliament is in its “monsoon session.” Schools and universities are starting their “monsoon term.” And here in the US, it’s time for the, um, Monsoon Book Tour. Yes, I’ll be on the road over the next three months, presenting mostly at public libraries. The tour (as I grandly call it) kicks off in Wheeling next Tuesday, August 20, and wraps up at Lakewood on November 21. At most venues, I’ve been asked to do a potpourri of travel tales from Madagascar, India, Bangladesh and India. It won’t be the same mix everywhere—so if you come to two presentations, you’re likely to hear different tales!  For a few libraries, I’ll be doing a country-focused presentation. And then there’s a more academic (but still entertaining) presentation in Denison University’s Global Studies Seminar series on October 14.
