Past Author Events
There are a few events still on the horizon but mainly I'm at home working on this. I guess there will be more when the paperback comes out. A fellow at Zen Mountain Monastery in Mt. Tremper, NY told me he called the publisher and they told him the paperback would come out in February of 2000.-DC
Past Book event schedule for

Stone Creek Zendo is a Soto Zen group led by Jisho Cary Warner who studied with Dainin Katagiri Roshi and who received ordination and transmission from Tozen Akiyama Roshi of the Milwaukee Zen Center. She is an editor who has worked with me on both my books. To learn more about Stone Creek Zendo write to the address above or call 707-829-9808. Thanks. DC

These author events are for when the paperback of Crooked Cucumber comes out on February 8th. This time, unlike the massive tour for the hardback, I'm not requesting additional readings. I'd rather stay home and work on new stuff and on this site. The paperback will be available before February 8th--ususally for a couple of weeks before the publishing date.--DC
9/8/99--I just got a call from the producer of the radio interview show listed below--it's been bumped today for a football game so they're going to reschedule for the third time. Well that's show biz!
On September 8th, from 6:15 to 7:00pm, I'll be interviewed by Geoffrey Fieger on WXYT radio, 1270 am in Detroit, Michigan. [He's quite an interesting, famous lawyer who has represented Kavorkian among others. Now he has a talk show too. It's been postponed twice. He's a very busy guy.]
September 21--Arrive in Zurich, go to Johanneshof in Germany (Baker-roshi's place) attend his wedding to a wonderful young German lady on the 24th and 25th, drive around with Vanya Palmers (Austrian old ZC priest who has started more than one sitting place over there) and Kobun Chino for some days, and then the last few days are up in the air until I return to the states on October 4th, my son Kelly's birthday (as it is that of Sputnik).
November 7,1999--I'll be part of an evening of dinners to benefit the Zen Hospice in San Francisco, being an honored guest at a home in SF. This hospice was started by the SFZC but is independent. It has been run for years by Frank Ostenseski (sp?). For more info call 415-863-2910.
On Monday August 2nd, I'm being interviewed by Sharon Bard for her program "On the Edge and Centered" which will air on KRCB FM 91 in Santa Rosa on August 12th at 6:30 PM. Check out their website at [Link doesn't work anymore. They've probably just got a new one--DC]
I'm going to be giving the public talk at Genjo-ji, Sonoma Mt. Zen Center, near Sonoma CA, this Saturday 7/31 at 11:00 am. There's a zazen beforehand at 10:30. It's at 6367 Sonoma Mt. Road. See their web site http://www.sirius.com/~smzc/genjoji.html for more info on them and for directions to get there.--DC
On July 18th some of the disciple of Suzuki-roshi will offer brief comments on passages from his lectures and answer questions--at Green Gulch Farm, Muir Beach, CA. There's a disciples group that has been meeting for a couple of years and we will meet the day before. I plan to keep quiet at Green Gulch because I've had plenty to say recently. Maybe we can get a transcript of that discussion on the 18th here at some point.
5/15/99--The tour's all over now. I had a great time, met lots of old friends and made new friends, but I'm glad to be back at home and working on the web site again. And, I'll post anything I happen to be doing on this page. There are a few things coming up. For instance, I'm going to the East Coast (6/19-28) for a family event in June and while I'm there I'll be in Boston, NYC, Brattleboro, and at the following:
On June 23rd, I'll be at the Empty Hand Zendo at The Meeting House, 624 Milton Rd., Rye, New York at 7:30pm. For details call 914-921-3327.
On June 25, I'll be at Northshire Books in Manchester Vermont at 7:30pm. I'm going to be there because I ended up in Manchester New Hampshire by accident when I was supposed to have read at the former Manchester in March. My apologies to the good people of Vermont. I look forward to returning to your fine state soon.
After I get back I read with Wes Nisker at Books Inc in San Francisco at 8 PM on Thursday July 1. (although there was no media and I also forgot to put it on this site till the day after).
