Here’s a list of all of our public events. We’ll be reading our books, doing drawing demonstrations, and signing. If you’re in the area, please join us! We encourage folks to purchase books from these awesome indie bookstores who are supporting us, rather than bringing in copies purchased elsewhere.

5/1 Portland, OR: Green Bean Books, 11AM-12PM
5/1 Beaverton, OR: Powell’s Cedar Hills Crossing, 2PM-3PM
5/2 San Fransisco, CA: Books Inc Laurel Village, 6PM-7PM
5/3 Seattle, WA: University Bookstore, 4PM-5PM

If you’re in the area, but still can’t make the event and would like a signed book, please get in touch with the store to pre-purchase. We’d be happy to personalize a copy for you that you can pick up later!
