A busy week!

Free Speech Handbook came out a week ago and Ian and I spent the time giving it as good a sendoff as we could. 

To kick things off, Books Are Magic hosted our official launch and virtual talk on December 1, moderated by our pal, NY Times bestselling author George O’Connor

Friday, December 3, we were hosted by Politics & Prose for our second online talk, moderated by LA Times deputy bureau chief in DC, Laura Wides-Muñoz

On Sunday, December 5, we woke up to the pleasant surprise that Free Speech Handbook had received a mention in the Sunday New York Times Book Review section. It’s always nice to have your work noticed, and great for the book itself to receive this kind of attention.

Hot on the heels of that, Ian and I spoke with Johnny Flores for his Graphic Novel Explorers Club podcast. Johnny was a great host and I’m looking forward to the final cut of the episode.

Then finally, last night, December 6, we spoke with journalist and professor Leon Lazaroff, hosted by Brooklyn College, for another spirited discussion on free speech issues.

I think Ian and I did right by our new book, which we’re both very proud of. Now it’s back to the drawing board for a while. Our next Free Speech Handbook event will be IN-PERSON (we hope…) on January 6, 7:30 PM ET, at Word Bookstore in Jersey City, NJ, hosted by NT Times bestselling author Grady Hendrix, but there’ll be more on that when we get closer to the date.
