Upcoming Speaking Events

Hi all, in my quest to meet all of you who read, I wanted to let you know where I’m going to be in the next two months, just in case you’re nearby.

Some of these events are private, but I’ll be in the area regardless and could possibly slip away for a bit if it made sense. There will probably be some additions around the time of the paperback launch, and new speaking offers come in almost every day, but this is pretty accurate as of now!

March 9 – Austin Texas, speaking at SXSW

March 29 – Minneapolis, Minnesota

April 9 – San Antonio, TX

April 11 – Tarrytown, New York

April 18 – Salem, Oregon

April 24 – Islip, New York

April 25 – DC Area

April 26 – TEDx talk in Sandy, UT

Sometime between June 26 and July 1 — ALA Annual in Las Vegas, NV

May 2 – ULA in Provo, UT

Somewhere between October 5-8 – Hot Springs, AR

October 16 and 17, Eau Claire, WI

Somewhere between October 29 and 31, Wichita, KS

I think that’s it for now!

            I live in Bellevue, WA and had referenced specifically your April 18 engagement in Salem, OR? Open to the public?
            I also am unable to to locate a personal Email for yourself that I saw on this website yesterday? I have a personal message and inquiry if it’s still available? Thanks.

            Allan, the Salem gig is going to be a closed library event for the Oregon Library Association. The contact form at the top of the page on this blog goes straight to my personal email if you’ll send that, or send it again. thanks!

    Is the DC area event open to the public? If so, let us know where. Would love to say Hi!

    • Josh Hanagarne February 20, 2014, 10:20 am

      Jack, afraid not, that’s a Loudon County staff day thing.

    Would love to hear you speak at the Minneapolis event. Is it open to the public? I just finished your book and am touched in so many ways… Especially with your openness on religion and your investigator status. Your mom is a wise woman and her message to you was helpful for me regarding our 25 yr old son who is in a similar place as you describe. Thank you for the many messages within your book!

    Glad to see you so busy and hapy for the people who get to meet you. But I don’t see you in California? Sad…

    Just finished reading your wonderful book with laughter and tears. Thank you for sharing your life, struggles, and great sense of humor. Your book is our April book club selection. I noticed that you’ll be speaking in Provo on May 2; could I get more information about that? Where? Time? Is public invited? I also looked up the Highland Games/Festival in Payson in July. Sounds interesting. Will you be competing? Thank you, Old McD
