A couple of people have asked me about my upcoming speaking schedule, so I thought I would post it here. I have broken it down into two separate lists. The first are my book readings to promote Jesus Before the Gospels, the book being published on March 1. Most authors no longer do big book tours, since they rarely generate much by way of sales; and most authors are oh so glad not to be doing these any more (they sound glamorous, but they oh-so-are-not). So my book readings involve just the local Independent book shops. But if you’re in the area, come to one of them. I think they’re great fun. Here they are.
Tues, March 1 @ 7 pm Quail Ridge Books and Music (Raleigh) –
Wed, March 2 @ 7 pm Flyleaf Books (Chapel Hill) –
Tues, March 8 @ 7 pm Regulator Bookshop (Durham) –
Wed, March 9 @ 3 pm Bull’s Head Bookshop at UNC (Chapel Hill) –
Sat, March 12 @ 11 am McIntyre’s Books (Pittsboro) –
In addition I am giving a number of talks, hither and yon around the country. Some of these involve multiple lectures (two or four); all of these are open to the public, but many of them require advance tickets.
