I had a fabulous trip to the West Coast including stops at two great Achtung Baby bookstore events in the San Francisco Bay Area: hosted by Book Passage in Sausalito and Napa Bookmine at the Napa County Library! I also enjoyed some great scenery and sunshine.
And a Google Talk at Google’s amazing Kirkland offices.
Everywhere I went I met wonderful, concerned parents, trying to figure out how to give their kids more independence in this age of fear and uncertainty. I tried to offer ideas and encouragement, many of which I hope you can also find in the pages of the book itself.
I arrived home, feeling exhausted but inspired–and very grateful.
