Today is National Pit Bull Awareness Day! I have no idea who started this campaign, but there are pit bull people organizing events all over the country. I'll be at Kiehl's in Chicago this afternoon with New Leash on Life, signing copies of Dogs I Have Met from noon til 3pm. And then this evening I'll be at Quimby's with Elizabeth Crane and other Chicago writers who play a part in the Chicago section of the new book. And then, following that reading, I'll be popping into a fundraiser for ARFHouse. And then...I get to go home to my pit bull to celebrate!
So, whereever you may be today, go kiss a pit bull, okay?
