Book tour for Tales from the Sausage Factory

In General on August 28, 2010 at 2:09 pm

We have a fairly full schedule of publicity events coming up in the next few weeks for our book, Tales from the Sausage Factory. On Monday, August 30, two days before publication, Susan Arbetter from Capitol Pressroomwill interview us from the Capitol itself, just down the hall on the third floor from where Feldman voted as a New York State legislator for eighteen years.

On Thursday, September 2, Brian Lehrer interviews us shortly after 11 a.m. on his prominent show on WNYC radio,  93.6 on your FM dial; and from 6 to 8 p.m., the first publication party for the book, for journalists and academics only, will take place at CUNY’s John Jay College, where I start teaching as an associate professor of public management two days earlier.

On Saturday, September 4, you may if you wish visit the Spencertown Art Academy’s Fifth Annual Festival of Books. This will take you to a beautiful part of our New York State, midway between Hudson, New York and the Berkshires, a nice two-and-a-half hour drive up the Taconic. If you go, please find the 3 p.m. panel discussion, “Dysfunction Junction,” featuring us, and also Lloyd Constantine, author of Journal of the Plague Year: An Insider’s Chronicle of Eliot Spitzer’s Short and Tragic Reign.”

Or, if that’s too far away for you, a week and a day later, Sunday, September 12, the Brooklyn Book Festival, right at Brooklyn’s Borough Hall on Joralemon Street in downtown Brooklyn, will host us on another panel, “All Politics is Local,” along with Frances S. Barry, the author of Scandal of Reform, and Scott Simpson, editor of the 40th anniversary edition of Shirley Chisholm’s book, Unbought and Unbossed. Our panel is supposed to start at 4; if you can’t get in to see us then, we’ll be outside for book signings at 40 minutes later. (The link for the Brooklyn Book Festival has been on this page for a few weeks already.)

For our Long Island friends, we’ll be signing books at Port Washington’s Dolphin Book Store, now at 299 Main Street after 50 years on Port Washington Boulevard, yet another week later, on Sunday, September 19, from one to four p.m.

We’ll be back in Albany on Thursday, September 23, first for an interview with WAMC’s Joe Donohue on The Roundtable at 10:45 a.m.; then for a presentation at the Rockefeller Institutefrom 1:30 to 3 p.m.; and then for a public book signing event at the Book House at Stuyvesant Plaza starting at 6 p.m.

If you find the Hudson Valley and the Shawungunk Mountains more convenient or more to your taste, we are scheduled for a presentation and signing at the Honors Center in College Hall at SUNY’s New Paltz College, on Thursday, September 30, at 5 p.m.

We’re back in Brooklyn, this time on the south shore, in my old Assembly District, on Sunday, October 3, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at the magnificent Marine and Academic Center of Kingsborough Community Collegeas part of Kingsborough’s 6th Annual Homecoming festivities.

On Tuesday, October 12, we tape a show for Baruch College Professor Doug Muzzio’s “City Talk,” on CUNY television; and on Sunday morning, October 24, 23 return to Port Washington, this time for a talk and book signing hosted by Temple Beth Israel’s Men’s Club.
