Like a Ferret on Cocoa Puffs

This post is also available in: Spanish


Isabel and Lori are leaving soon on the Maya’s Notebook U.S. book tour. It’s going to be a long tour and I keep trying to get them to take me along. After all, how can they possibly manage without me? They have promised to send me photos from every city and from all the readings so I can post them to the blog. It would, of course, be easier to just take me with them…

Actually, I really don’t think I could keep up. Isabel has been doing dozens of interviews these last few weeks and it’s once again clear she has more energy than a ferret on Cocoa Puffs. I once was “in charge” of Isabel in Manhattan for a day and it was like I had a toddler again—she’s constantly running off to look at shiny things in shopfronts three blocks away. Yeah…I am tired just thinking about a book tour, a different city every day, airplane after airplane and all that messing about with tickets and taxis. Okay, fine! (This is me trying to talk myself out of how much fun it would be to go.)

By the way, if you want to see the tour dates, check out our calendar on Isabel’s website, some events are sold out. If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area on April 23, please join us all for the official English-language launch of Maya’s Notebook in San RafaelThe reading and discussion of the novel (a Book Passage bookstore event; tickets are available here) begins at 7pm at Dominican University’s Angelico Hall. It is going to be great. Isabel will cast a spell on you and you will walk away not only with her latest novel but also with that good feeling you get when you support a small bookseller—in this case Book Passage, Isabel’s favorite local bookstore!
