  1. There are actually literate people on the other side of the Ohio (a few) who would like you to visit. Joseph Beth in Lexington is a very nice store that hosts authors regularly. Louisville has Carmichaels, and smaller cities have independants like Poor Richard’s in Frankfort.

  2. Ben – I am a mom with two kids at Seven Locks Elementary School. I run a voluntary Reading Incentive Program for the school. I was wondering if you would make a school visit to talk to the kids about your work?
    Thanks,
    Susan

  3. I know you were just here in April to receive the Philip K. Dick award for Countdown City but YOU NEED TO COME BACK TO SEATTLE ! Please!
