Mexico's railroad on a vintage postcard.
And From Coast to Coast

These New England events are part of a two-month tour linking Atlantic
and Pacific—just like the old railroad and highway plans for Mexico's
Isthmus of Tehuantepec. I will be on a road trip from Boston to Seattle,
with stops in fifteen states on the way. In addition to New England, I
am doing events in: Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, New York, Ohio,
Pennsylvania, Texas, both Washingtons, and Wisconsin.

Please let your friends and colleagues who live in those areas know!
Details about all the events are available at my website. And I would
love to hear from you. You can reach me at: wlc at wendycall.com.

I hope to see you (and your friends!) this fall. I would be grateful for
any feedback you have about No Word for Welcome. Please know how
grateful I am for all the support I received from so many for this project.

I hope to see you in September!


P.S. Please do let me know if you would prefer not to receive future
e-mails about the book.
(I promise they will be rare.)
