Will we play in Peoria?

Adventures with Ari is hitting the road. This week, we're travelling to Central Illinois, home of Caterpillar Incorporated, Bradley University, and what is still the largest consumer test market demographic in the country.

For well over a century, everyone from Broadway musical producers to Pepsi stylists have been asking if their show, product, gimick, or great idea will play in Peoria. Now, it's our turn.

On Monday, May 11th, we'll be appearing on the "Greg and Dan Show" on WMBD, Central Illinois's #1 radio talk show. The interview will take place around 8:10 a.m. Central Time, and you can listen live here.

Later that night, we'll be visiting with some book clubs that are currently reading Adventures with Ari.

And, finally, on Tuesday at 5:00 p.m., we'll be giving a reading and book signing at "I Know You Like a Book" in Peoria Heights.

We'll have a full report when we return. In the meantime, hope to see you there!

Bradley U is my alma mater! If you get a chance, grab a "Gondola" a sub sandwich from Avanti's restaurant. They used to make their own bread daily, and the scent wafting up to my dorm window was responsible for at least 10 lbs.

Have a great trip out there!

Oy. You are so famous! Way to go! Alas, it is much too far for a mere goat to travel though.
