Publication Day

Finally, the book is out! Look for it at one of the dwindling number of bookstores near you, or follow the links in this sentence to get me a few referral pennies from Amazon.com or BarnesAndNoble.com or an indie bookstore. (There are also Kindle and Nook versions, of course.)

If you've somehow missed the media blitz (the Kardashians' tweets alone probably have you sick of me by now), this is a book in which I defend the petting of peeves but caution the sticklers that they're not always as right as they think they are. (And much, much more.)

Will there be a tour? Why, yes! Or at least a little one. The following reading/signings and radio interviews are scheduled:

  • Monday, June 24: At 11 a.m., I'll be on WOSU in Columbus on "All Sides With Ann Fisher."

    At 6 p.m., I'll be at an invitation-only $10,000-a-plate dinner at a friend's house in Bexley, Ohio, just outside Columbus. If you'd like an invitation, just ask. (I'm kidding about the $10,000 dinner. It's actually way more expensive. And there's no dinner.)

  • Tuesday, June 25: At 6 p.m., I'll be at the Book Loft in the lovely German Village section of Columbus, reading and signing.

  • Thursday, June 27: At 7 p.m., I'll be at Nicola's Books in Ann Arbor, Mich., reading and signing.

  • Monday, July 1: At 7 p.m., I'll be at Politics & Prose, the premier bookstore in Washington, D.C., reading and signing. I have fond memories of my appearance there for "The Elephants of Style."

  • Friday, July 5: At 5:15 p.m. Eastern time (4:15 p.m. Central time), I'll be on Wisconsin Public Radio's "Central Time."
