This schedule is always in active development, so is subject to change. Please check back for updates! If you have a question about a specific event, please send an email to and we'll do our best to answer.

Please note: Where an event is described as a "signing" only, John may stay only as long as it takes him to sign books for the store and anyone who's waiting. Please be prompt to avoid disappointment!

John is generally happy to sign anything you bring along with you, but some stores set limits, and most if not all require you to buy the new book from them (which is just good manners). For specific policies, please call the store before the event. Thanks very much!
