President Barack Obama has just announced that November has been officially designated “Hug An Author Month.” Actually, I just made that up. But there will be opportunities aplenty for you to hug this author (or simply shake hands with him) in the weeks to come. My new book, Wheels of Change, will arrive in bookstores in November, and it has already been described as “important to the preservation and interpretation of California history.” And it’s entertaining too!
