Some news about our Route 66 in Kansas book

This past week, Joe Sonderman and I received some news about our Route 66 in Kansas pamphlet, er, book. (As expected, we have taken a lot of ribbing about producing a whole book about 13 miles of our favorite highway!)

Anyway, Arcadia Publishing informed us of the publication/release date of Route 66 in Kansas. Talk about patriotic. Our official release date is July 4th! We had guessed that the book would likely be released in May, since that is roughly six months after our materials submission date. But that's okay. We think July 4th is cool. 

Tentatively we will have some book signings in July and/or August in Galena and Baxter Springs. We'll post those dates once they're firmed up. And one or both of us will be at the following festivals with the new book:

Aug. 12-14    Birthplace of Route 66 Festival                                Springfield MO
Sept. 3          Berwyn Car Show                                                    Berwyn IL
Sept. 23-25   International Route 66 Mother Road Festival          Springfield IL
Nov. 10-13    Route 66 Festival                                                     Los Angeles CA

The other piece of news is that we received all our page proofs for the book this past week! So we will be going over the book for the last time before publication.
