Hello Loyal Readers,
And today, perhaps, Loyal Listeners. I’m traveling through the book tour, in Los Angeles right now, and the obvious topic this week is Penn State. (Perhaps you’ve heard.) But given the event schedule (under “Events” here), I knew I couldn’t do the story justice, and to try to write something else would seem to trivialize an important subject.
So, instead this week, you can listen to an interview we taped last Thursday with Michigan Radio’s excellent morning host, Christina Shockley. It also comes with a bit of text, too — and she gets it all done in about three minutes.
Here it is: http://michiganradio.org/post/john-u-bacon-you-can-either-be-pr-man-or-you-can-be-journalist-and-try-tell-truth
I’ll be appearing at the UM Club of San Diego’s Michigan-Illinois game watch party Saturday afternoon, where I will be signing books, and again Sunday at the San Diego Champions Center from 1-3, then traveling to Orange County to make a similar appearance from 5-7 p.m. (All the details are on the Event Schedule, including a number of new dates we’ve just added, including a book signing at Nicola’s Books on Saturday, December 17, from 2-4.)
The book debuts in the paper version of the New York Times Book Review at #6 Sunday morning. Honest. Thanks for all your help in getting it there!
Hope to see you somewhere along the book tour.
