News arrived today that Stephen Colbert, and not myself, has been selected to replace David Letterman. TV execs informed me I didn’t come in first place. They also pointed out that the show is a talk show. On talk shows, it’s usually the talk show guest who customarily sells their book. The talk show host does not sell his own book. Oh, well.
So I’ll be off this Saturday, April 12, 2014, to Union College in Barbourville, Kentucky, to appear at the Redbud Festival of Appalachian Culture. There, I’ll be free to talk all I want, or all you want to hear, about my book. Most all of what I’ve written never has been published before.
You’ll find me at Union College on Writer’s Row, where I’ll be discussing my book without any prohibition whatsoever with everyone coming to see me. Fans of Stephen Colbert are especially welcomed to join in.
