On Tuesday October 6th I’ll be playing Jenga into the wee hours @ Bar 675 in The Meat Packers’ District of New York City!
Sitting at my desk in my office (a converted 16th century cart barn) on our farm in the middle of the Oxfordshire countryside, surrounded by meadows full of sheep, hares, deer and pheasants (NB:- that’s a ph not a p) – I’m finding it a little tricky this morning to absorb the idea that we’re off to New York, New York in just three days. And that we’ll be away in the States for a month – on a book tour that starts in NYC, which includes a stop off in DC, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver, LA, San Fransisco, and which ends in Phoenix. Oh, and possibly involves a side trip to Orlando, too.
I’ll be attending a mind bogglingly diverse collection of events, which range from playing Jenga in bars – the aforementioned Bar 675 NYC on Oct 6th and the Rock & Roll Hotel DC on Oct 8th – to a book signing event at Chevaliers, in LA on Oct 18th to be hosted by the chairman of BritWeek – to speaking at the Haas School of Business in Berkeley on Oct 22nd.
But then, I’ve always felt that diversity is what makes life thrilling.
