Blogbud, blurber and excellent novelist Christian Bauman, along with Caren Lissner and Caroline Leavitt, will be reading from Living on the Edge of the World: New Jersey Writers Take on the Garden State, a collection of writings on the oddities of living here in The Land Twixt Hudson and Delaware. All three writers are featured in the collection, which Amazon tells me is on the way even as I type this. The reading is set for June 14 at Symposia Bookstore in Hoboken, and you can read all about it here.  

As for my book, The Last Three Miles: Politics, Murder, and the Construction of America’s First Superhighway, I’ve added a few more readings. I’m also doing the first of what I hope will be a slew of newspaper and radio interviews, which I’ll post as they become available.

I’ll be updating my list shortly, but the newest reading is set for June 21 at 8 p.m. in The Raconteur, a fine independent bookstore in Metuchen, N.J. I also have an appearance set for Saturday, August 11, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Barnes & Noble in Freehold, N.J.  Oh heck, I’ll just re-run the entire current list here:
