Readings and signings
Julian's, Chapel Hill
May 6, 2015 - Fashion designer and my longtime friend Alexander Julian was host to my book reading in this unconventional venue (i.e. not a bookstore) but those can be great fun and this one certainly was. People turned out from my entire history—fitting for a time travel story.
Murder by the Book, Houston
March 14, 2015 - Old friends were among the audience at Murder by the Book as I put a new spin on One Red Thread. I read the passage describing the discovery of a dead woman in the river. It was her drowning that began the long chain of events that shaped nearly a hundred years of McBride family history.
The Wild Detectives, Dallas
Feb. 25, 2105 - I timed my trip perfectly—catching one clear day between two snowstorms—to read One Red Thread at The Wild Detectives, a hip venue in the Oak Cliff neighborhood. It's a bookstore... and a coffee shop... and a bar that has become something of a community arts hub. Lots of folks coming and going, but the place turned quiet and people sat listening as I told my tale.
Malvern Books, Austin
Feb. 12, 2105 - The good people at Malvern Books do excellent things. They made a video recording, which you can stream via YouTube at my Events page. And they had birthday cake for me—because the readilng was only two days before my big day. Such wonderful "care and feeding" of authors!
Book Shop, San Antonio
Jan. 20, 2015 - We abandoned the lectern, pushed chairs into a circle and had an hour-long discussion of One Red Thread. The Twig was the perfect, intimate venue for a wide-ranging yet close examination of the book.
Jan. 5, 2015 - We kicked off with a Tyrus Books two-fer as about 60 people turned out at BookPeople to hear me read from One Red Thread and Tracy Manaster of Portland OR, read from You Could Be Home By Now.
