Tour Schedule, One Last Time

  • Share This Article

I have finally completed my packing for tour. I think. It’s hard to prepare for 29 days of surprises, so I always pack for 29 days of everything going perfectly as planned and assume that the sheer weight of that packing expectation will shape reality.

And if not, I can always buy an extra set of toe-nail clippers in Chicago.

Here is the tour schedule, for anyone who missed it before. Know that I will be wearing something that is in that pictured suitcase. Know also that I’ll be at the Texas Book Festival and will have more details on October Texas dates very soon. And good golly. I hope you enjoy The Raven Boys if you pick it up these next few weeks.

    When you say “One last time,” you don’t mean “last tour ever” do you?? Hopefully not…. Travel in whatever way you are traveling safely! πŸ™‚

    • Oh, no, not at all — I just meant that I was only posting the tour schedule for this tour one last time! πŸ™‚

      • Beth

        That’s what I figured, but I had to check. πŸ™‚

      • Anna Victoria

        Whew, I thought the same thing! I was freaking out — “Oh no, this is her last tour and Cincinnati’s not in the list!” Could you please stop here next time you tour?

  • Emily

    And, of course, you don’t stop in Indiana. WHY DOES NO ONE STOP IN INDIANA?!?!?!!

  • Krissii

    -cough- and a quick excursion up north to Canada? Edmonton, AB? Oh good! Glad you think it’s an amazing idea too πŸ˜€

  • Kelly Paige

    No love for the south? Okay then ):

  • Savs

    I spy Lush in your bag! I approve. The no Southern stops… not so much, but I know you don’t control that.

    • Alas, I don’t. And I don’t know why. Normally we try to spread it out throughout the year, but I haven’t really done much in the South at all this year.

  • Erin

    I finally convinced my parents to take me to the National Book Festival in DC! I can’t wait. I just wanted to ask if I could bring your books that I already own for you to sign and if I’m going to be able to buy Raven Boys at the event. Because I would really love to have you sign all of my books.
    And I was wondering if you have a favorite animal or something I could draw for you, because I would love to give you something and animals are my specialty.

    • Yay, Erin! I’m happy to bring everything you bring from home so long as you buy a book from the event to support them (and yes, they’ll have Raven Boys!). I’d love to see your art, but it’s hard for me to carry things around on tour, so maybe you could bring your favorite for me to see instead?

      • Erin

        I will definitely bring my favorites for you to see. I’m trying to narrow it down to two, so we will see how that goes. See you Saturday! I can’t wait!

  • I would like to put in for you to come to Changing Hands bookstore in Tempe, AZ! I am not affiliated with them other than being a loyal customer but it would be cool to meet you. I read the first chapter of Raven Boys online and have to say I absolutely love it. I can’t wait until Tuesday so I can rush to the store and buy my own copy. πŸ™‚

  • Cass

    Sad you’re coming to New York when I’m going to be at school.
    And I live on Long Island. :'(

  • Tracie

    Argh! So close to Iowa… and yet so far… Have a great trip

  • Sarah

    I see Boston on that list!!! Excuse me while I go dance around the living room, while my bird stares at me like I’m crazy πŸ™‚

  • I so wish you were stopping in Cincinnati! I’m dying to meet you! I’ve been a lurker in your blog for years haha. You’re books are just so wonderful. Usually once I read a series by one author, I don’t like their other works as much, but I seriously love all of your stories!
    I wish you had some sort of say in where you go, Chicago is the closest to me but that’s still a 5 hour drive πŸ™
    oh well, maybe someday!

  • What?! No green spiky backpack?

  • Tiah

    No AZ? πŸ™ I love that orange bag!

  • Kat

    Hi Maggie, I’m hoping to come to one of the Cambridge events and I noticed the Facebook address wasn’t the one for the Coop. Also, to my knowledge there is no Barnes and Noble at the Facebook address (Google is failing to show me one, too). The Coop is run by Barnes and Noble, though. Maybe that’s what you meant? Since there’s really no easy way to check both locations without doing some impressive circling maneuvers, I was just wondering…

    • Oh, good catch — it is definitely at the Coop, and I’ve fixed the address (hopefully!) to reflect that for other folks who might wonder. I’d love to see you there!

  • K8

    I really wish you were somewhere more Southeastern for this tour! (Or that you were in MA in December when I could be up there on my college break). One day I’m sure I’ll get the chance to meet you! It is on my bucket list πŸ™‚


  • Jeremy

    Can’t wait to see you again in NY!
    Bringing ALL of your books πŸ™‚

  • Yay Texas Book Festival!

  • Marirose

    Hi! I am such an avid reader and I’m going to see you talk in washington. My last name is Monaghan, just like Dierdre and That’s so awesome! I love all of your stuff too!

  • Gwen Cole

    Do you plan on signing at the Fountain Bookstore anytime soon? I know they’re all signed there already, but it would be nice to actually meet you too πŸ˜› Plus, I still need my Scorpio Races signed.

  • Kat

    Hoping to see you in Ontario! Safe travels!

  • Elettra

    I wanted to say that his books are fantastic and I am one of his biggest fans.

  • Victoria

    I’m so excited that you’re coming to Brampton, Ontario! I’m going to buy so many books there for you to sign, haha.
    I was just wondering . . . could I ask you some questions about writing? I really love books and I want to be an author when I’m older and I look up to you greatly.
    Also, we’re allowed to take pictures with you, right? haha
    Love you, Maggie! I can’t wait to meet you on Tuesday!

  • Ash

    Austin.. 3 or 2 hour drive for me.. I don’t know, but I hope to come and get all the Shiver books I have signed. & I am just starting Raven Boys. πŸ˜€

  • Really bummed that the State Street Macy’s event got moved. I guess I should have checked the Facebook page. πŸ™ Drat! And I was so looking forward to it. I guess I’ll have to catch you on your next tour!

  • Maggie – you are an amazing person. Wasn’t really sure where to post this but I really wanted to thank you for Your guitar giveaway. I am grateful to have won your beautiful guitar. All summer I was secretly longing for a new guitar, different from my classical. I so appreciate your artwork. It gives me great joy in general. I have started reading your book (my favorite genre) – love it!!

    Have an amazing wonderful tour.

    With gratitude,

    • J

      Which event were you at? πŸ™‚ and congrats! (I was at Paramus)

  • It’s actually a great and useful piece of info. I’m satisfied that you just shared this helpful information with us. Please keep us informed like this. Thanks for sharing.

  • Random

    I went to the Paramus one! Upset I didn’t win the sharpie guitar even though I had 5 tickets! πŸ™ LOL! (Bought the entire shiver trilogy and two raven boys)
    I’m surprised that only THAT many people came though! Even though – like you said – it was the apocalypse outside!
