Sherry Boschert at Elliott Bay Book Co
The timing is confirmed for my reading and book-signing at Elliott Bay Book Co., 101 S. Main Street, Seattle -- Tuesday, March 6, 6:00 p.m.
Please spread the word so that we get as many people to turn out as possible, to show that there's interest in plug-in vehicles! Any chance we can get a PHEV to be there? (Ryan, I can't remember whether you live close to Seattle or not...)
