Beer n' Book tour headin' this WAY!
Here's a tour we'd like to join, for at least a round or two.
During June, with the help of the Lagunitas Brewing Company, Petaluma, Calif., Algonquin Books is taking three authors on the road on the Free Beer Tour. The events will include beer tastings, "pairing great books with great beer." The authors (and their beer pairing) are Pete Nelson, author of I Thought You Were Dead (Lagunitas New DogTown Pale Ale); Josh Wilker, author of Cardboard Gods: An All American Tale (Lagunitas Czech Style Pilsner); and David Anthony, author of Something for Nothing (Lagunitas Censored Rich Copper Ale).
The Free Beer Tour will slosh into Anderson's Bookshop, Naperville, Ill., Boswell Book Company, Milwaukee, Wis., DIESEL Books, Oakland, Calif., Brookline Booksmith, Brookline, Mass., and Book People, Austin, Tex.
