Heading North

The Goldbergs are off to Montreal for a couple days starting tomorrow. This is a family thing, no speaking engagements or anything like that. Restaurant recommendations are always welcome, of course. And I’ll be checking in from time to time, to be sure.

Meanwhile, for those interested in hosting yours truly during  the book tour this January, dates are filling up fast. For the record, the small intimate dinner invitations have been appreciated, but at least for the first part of the tour, I’m looking for bigger venues. Campus gigs, big groups, clubs etc. But there will be a lot of opportunities for smaller gigs down the road. For reasons that should be incandescently  obvious, large groups are better than smaller ones, and paying gigs are better than free ones. But nothing is being ruled out. Thanks so much for the interest, by the way. 

Jonah Goldberg — Jonah Goldberg is a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute and a senior editor of National Review. His new book, The Suicide of The West, will be released on April 24.
