Speaking at Stanwich School
welcome_to_stanwich_r4_c2.jpg
Stanwich is a new, coed private school in Greenwich. This is its 8th year of operation. I will be presenting to Junior House students (grades 7-9), about 65 of them. If you are one of the students, hi, hey, I look forward to reading from It's Kind of a Funny Story and talking with you about my various adventures and crack-ups.

We will also do book signings and plenty of Q&A.;

Parents, I'll do my best not to corrupt your spawn.
