I took a couple weeks off from writing articles to finish up some book projects — I’m involved in three books coming out in 2018.
My 2015 essay collection, “The View From Flyover Country”, will be re-released in April with additional material; you can pre-order it here. I will be doing a reading and signing in St. Louis at Left Bank Books on April 17, and have other readings tentatively scheduled in other US cities. If you would like to have me do a reading, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll forward the info to my publisher and publicity team. “The View From Flyover Country” became an online best-seller in 2016 and I’m glad a print version will finally be available to those who want it!
I also wrote the introduction to “The List”, Amy Siskind’s meticulous, real-time, week-by-week chronicle of the lurch toward authoritarianism under Trump. Her book will be available in April as well. Additionally, I have a chapter in the new collection from BELT Publishing, “Red State Blues: Stories from Midwestern Life on the Left” — a series of essays by writers living in the Midwest on the politics of our region. That will be out in September.
