Updated SILK ROAD TO RUIN Book Tour Schedule

Boise was awesome! Hundreds of people showed up, they asked many great questions and I got to see some amazing scenery and eat at great restaurants during my down-time. Thanks to the Boise Weekly for sponsoring a successful event!

The following dates remain on my book tour. Other cities will be added as information becomes available.

I will present an audio-visual overview of the current situation in ex-Soviet Central Asia and why it matters to all Americans, followed by a Q&A discussion and, obviously, book signing. Although the emphasis will be on SILK ROAD TO RUIN, we expect to have copies of my upcoming cartoon collection AMERICA GONE WILD (official publication date: October 15) available at these events as well.

Monday 9/25 7:00 – 8:30 pm – The Strand bookstore, 828 Broadway at 12th Street, New York City – cosponsored by EurasiaNet.org and Forbidden Planet.

Thursday 9/28, 7:30 pm – Barnes and Noble Greenwich Village, 396 Sixth Avenue at West 8th Street, New York City

Thursday 10/5, 7:30 pm – Elliott Bay Book Co., 101 South Main Street Street, Seattle

Thursday 10/12, Time TBD – Politics and Prose, 5015 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington, DC – this will be a joint appearance as part of Cartoonists with Attitude [Note: Possible broadcast by C-SPAN’s Book TV]

Friday 10/13 & Saturday 10/14, 10 am – 5 pm – Small Press Expo, Marriott Bethesda North Hotel & Conference Center, 5701 Marinelli Road, North Bethesda, Maryland – I will be signing books at the NBM Publishing table.

Saturday 11/4, 2 pm – Books & Co. at The Greene, 4453 Walnut Street, Beavercreek, Ohio


Generally speaking I do signings in cities under one of two conditions: (1) it has a newspaper that regularly publishes my work and can be counted upon to publicize the event or (2) an organization can support my visit with paid publicity, an travel expenses and honorarium. So the best ways to get me to come to your city are to convince your local editor to publish my work or find a college, peace group, etc. to organize the shindig.

I am currently working on dates in San Francisco, Portland (OR) and Los Angeles. There are no plans at this time to come to any other city to support SILK ROAD, but if you’d like me to come and think you can hook up one of the two requisites to make my appearance worth the effort for everyone involved, drop me a line at chet@rall.com.
