What are Book Tours Like?

On the one hand: Amazing! You meet so many wonderful people, are supported and reinforced by enthusiastic and thoughtful audiences, are honored by person after person sharing their stories with you, and get to spend time in some of the country’s best Indie Book stores (I’m talking about you, Room of One’s Own, Tattered Cover, Third Place Books & Powell’s City of Books!).

On the other hand: Exhausting! You have to leave the hotel at 4:45 AM, get on plane at 6:30 AM, arrive in a new city in time to grab a snack, wash your hair and get ready to speak at 2 in the afternoon. Rinse and repeat. (And TOTALLY worth it! I can’t wait to see everyone in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.)

"The Education of Will delves deep into the minds of people and dogs, and into the effects of trauma, showing that healing is possible. McConnell gives a voice to those who can’t speak in words and provides hope for fearful animals everywhere."

—Temple Grandin, author of Animals Make Us Human and Animals in Translation.
