The No Meat Athlete Book Tour

no meat athlete book coverYep, it’s happening! I’ll be traveling around the country throughout the months of October and November to support my new book.

I’d love to meet you in person when I’m in your city. Most of the time we’ll be doing talks, runs, and book signings, or some combination thereof.

Most event descriptions include a link to a Facebook event page and/or the venue’s event page, where you’ll find more details — please RSVP “Yes” or “Maybe” on the Facebook page if you plan on attending, so that we can prepare and so that you’ll be notified of any updates or changes (and details are subject to change).

Also, I’ll be filling in events for “TBD” spots, so check back often!
