I’ll be in the Bay area this weekend reading and signing copies of The Maharishi Effect. I hope you’ll come see me at Book Passage in Corte Madera at 5:00 PM November 5th. Click here to see the Book Passage web page for the event.
The Maharishi Effect is now available in bookstores in the United States and Canada. If you’re near one of the big chains, there’s a good chance you’ll find it on the shelves. If your local independent bookstore doesn’t stock it, they can order it for you. I hope you enjoy reading it.
Thanks to everybody who showed up for my appearance yesterday at the Wisconsin Book Festival. We had a full house of 40 or so people. There was lots of laughter and good discussion.
The first article about my book is available online here:
I couldn’t have asked for a better article. Writer Frank Bures definitely “got it.”
I just added a photo to my author profile page on LibraryThing. One cool feature of that site is that you can see a portrait gallery of all the authors in your library. (At least all the ones that have a picture in the LibraryThing database.)
Check out the photos in my gallery. Currently, I’m between F. Scott Fitzgerald and Stephen Jay Gould.
The book tour for The Maharishi Effect begins on the publication date–October 19, 2006. I’ll be appearing here in Madison as part of the Wisconsin Book Festival. The event is at 5:30 in the Wisconsin Historical Museum on the capitol square. Check their web site for directions. I’ll be reading selections from the book, answering questions, and autographing copies for sale by the museum. Please come and join the fun!
Here are some of the photos taken by Mark Sibley for the article about my book in the September 7 issue of the Madison Isthmus.
If you have any comments, queries, or discussion topics, this is the place to post them.
