My feet have blisters this evening: today, I ran all over Manhattan, dropping by as many independent booksellers as I could and signing their copies of Whitman Illuminated: Song of Myself. I wasn’t sure what kind of reception I would get (people are busy, after all), but I can’t thank Blake, Emily, Landon, Rachel, Davi, and everyone else enough for being so generous, welcoming, and helpful.
Here are the independent booksellers in Manhattan who now have signed copies of my book for sale: Strand Book Store, McNally Jackson, Bluestockings, The Corner Bookstore, and Crawford Doyle Booksellers.
But Brooklynites: despair not, for I will reprise my role as Mercury in your fair borough this Sunday! I will be stopping by the following independent bookshops, in this order: Spoonbill & Sugartown, Word, Greenlight, and Bookcourt. (I hope to arrive at my first destination by noon.)
After I’ve completed this mighty feat, I will be racing over to Brooklyn Bridge Park to participate in this year’s Song of Myself Marathon Reading. Hope to see you there–and support your independent bookstores!
