Dear Friends,

I’m excited to introduce you to my new book Good Morning, Beautiful Business, which focuses on my love of nature, animals and community and my work in building local living economies. This memoir follows my entrepreneurial and activist adventures from age nine to the present. It's full of funny stories and meaningful experiences. I hope you will get a copy, enjoy the read, and let me know how we might best move forward together in building a new economy that works for all. And have a lot of fun along the way!

The official book launch was on March 14, 6:30 pm at the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia, where I was joined by 300 friends, family and fellow members of the Sustainable Business Network,  which hosted the event.  It was a joyful evening with a guest appearance by the Swing Set, a duet that played at the White Dog Cafe in the early days. They will also be playing during my book signing on March 30th at the Reading Terminal. Please click on the “Events” button for a schedule of my talks and book signings.

I’m looking forward to visiting many of you in other cities as my book tour expands around the country, so please let me know if you have an event where you would like me to talk about my book in your community. By clicking on the “Speaking” button, you will find more information about my talks.

We will soon be adding oodles of photographs to this website of the book launch and archives of old White Dog Cafe events, international trips, employees and customers, as well as albums of my times living with the Eskimos, starting the Free People’s Store, working with the Zapatistas and launching the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies. So stay tuned.

I hope to see you at a book talk in Philly or in my cross-country travels.

Enjoy life,
