The high point of visiting Seattle on the book tour for SLAYING GOLIATH was a rousing event at Town Hall, beautifully renovated since my last visit.

I was introduced by Garfield High School teacher Jesse Garfield, who is one of the heroes of the book. He is busy with Black Lives Matter at School events but took the time to spend the evening with a lovely crowd that included BATS, union leaders, teachers, retired teachers, and other concerned citizens.

Seattle is a beautiful city but the weather was bleak, rainy, and cold during our two days.

On Wednesday we flew to San Francisco and were thrilled to see the sun shining and mild temperatures. We went out to dinner at a lovely restaurant and on our way out, recognized former Senator Al Franken and said hello.

Tomorrow evening I speak at Kepler Bookstore in Menlo Park. Friday night I will speak at Balboa High School, sponsored by the United Teachers Of San Francisco. If you are in the area, say hello!
