Philly Launch. Coast-To-Coast Book Tour. Hope to see you!


February 11th. The big day. My fifth book, THE GOOD LUCK OF RIGHT NOW, will be officially published. Global celebrations and a book tour will commence immediately. We're launching in my home city, at the Free Library of Philadelphia - 7:30 PM - and then I will travel about the U.S.A. speaking and signing. (A Toronto date should also be announced soon.) (All dates below.)

My latest talk is about synchronicity; Alicia, my wife; Canadian religious shrines (seriously, well, at least one); rental cars; the mysteries of the universe; celebrating the beautiful unknown; whatever else you desire because there will be a Q&A (we want you to leave completely satisfied); and, of course, THE GOOD LUCK OF RIGHT NOW. I'll be signing beautiful brand-new first-edition hardback copies of my latest (and dare I say greatest?). (I may be able to talk about GOOD LUCK movie casting by then too. Very exciting news to share just as soon as my film agent says go.) I hope to see you at an event. Same bighearted and chewy talk each stop (well, the Q&A is always a fun wildcard, so please feel free to attend in multiple cities):

Graeme Simsion Blurbs GOOD LUCK

Graeme Simsion, author of the hilarious and humane and internationally beloved THE ROSIE PROJECT, talks about my new book: “I read THE GOOD LUCK OF RIGHT NOW in one sitting … original, compelling, uplifting … celebrates the power of ordinary, flawed human beings to rescue themselves and each other … shot through with wit and humanity.”
