the stick tour

I have quite a few events coming up which coincide with the release of Stick (October 11, 2011). I will be posting details about the Orange County Festival of Books, the Southern California Independent Booksellers Awards Ceremony, and the Miami Book Festival International in the coming days and weeks. I recently found out my schedule for the upcoming NCTE/ALAN conference in Chicago, which is such an incredible city. I am really looking forward to going back there with Stick (and Sex Wax T-Shirts). I'll be flying in to Chicago from Miami, directly from the Book Festival there (details to come), but here are the events and panels I will be participating in at NCTE/ALAN in Chicago:
