I'M SAD BOOK TOUR 2018: June 5-11, 2018

(Last updated June 25, 2018)

Thanks to Simon & Schuster Children's, I visited schools and bookstores in Virginia, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Connecticut and New York to talk about books and reading and I'M SAD, a picture book written by Michael Ian Black and illustrated by yours truly (sequel to I'M BORED). I posted along the way using the hashtag #ImSadBookTour on Twitter. Michael Ian Black and I had a ton of fun.
