Thank you so much to everyone who came out to the first three events of my little book tour for Non-Christian Nation.  Especially I want to thank Brookline Booksmith, the Strand Bookstore in New York City, and Head House Books in Philadelphia for allowing me to read at their awesome independent bookstores and for being such gracious hosts.  And also super duper thank you to Lucien Greaves and Penny Lane for taking part in the events–I really appreciate it.  And finally, thank you to CSPAN for filming the Strand event for Book TV.  I’m not sure when the program will air, but when it does, I’ll be sure to mention it here.  In the meantime, here are a few pictures from the events.

I always try to bring whisky for the audience. My motto is that nobody should ever have to bring their own flask to one of my readings
