As anyone who works in publishing or who has authored a book can tell you–book tours are hit or miss. Fortunately, for one recently published author–Amin Ghaziani, author of There Goes the Gayborhood?–his book tour has landed firmly at the hit end of the spectrum. Here are some photos from the road and a list of forthcoming tour stops.
San Francisco! Where it all began with a standing-room only event at The Green Arcade.
Chicago! Much of the research for There Goes the Gayborhood? was conducted in Chicago, so it was fitting for Amin to have an event at Unabridged Bookstore. The homecoming feel of this event was cemented by the appearance of a special guest of honor for the evening–Amin’s mother!
Amin has several more events planned in the coming months, so make sure you get these dates in your calendar:
- October 2: New York (Special Event at the Center for Lesbian and Gay Studies). [Update, here is a photo from Amin's event last week. CLAGS hosted a conversation between Amin and Christina Hanhardt, Lammy award winner for her book Safe Space. There was a full house and the audience was deeply engaged with insightful observations and meaningful questions.]
- October 23: Vancouver (Little Sisters bookstore, Vancouver)
- December 12: Seattle (Eliott Bay Book Company, Seattle)
