FALL 2013 SCHEDULE
Note correction: Seaside Library reading is actually on NOVEMBER 21.
Here’s the cover of the paperback edition of BRUCE, which will be published by Touchstone/Simon & Schuster in the USA on September 17. Buy it at the usual places, both in the real world and cyber-. You’ll find clickable purchase points for your favorite real/virtual shops all over this site, so I’m not going to put them here again, because how much retailing can one English major stand, really.
Particularly with so many events to report in so many cool places.
Down in Brazil, the publisher Nossacultura has just published a Portuguese edition of the book, pegged to Springsteen’s appearance at the massive Rock in Rio festival on September 21.
