Michael Moore is an Academy-Award winning filmmaker and best-selling author
My publisher has put together the first batch of dates for my book tour which begins this Tuesday, September 13, in New York City. If you're in the neighborhood, come be part of my very first reading and signing at Barnes & Noble in Union Square at 7:00pm. C-Span will be there to tape it and I'll be there to say a few words before we commence with the literary portion of the evening.
Unfortunately, I won't be able to visit most of the 20,000 bookstores in the country, so I've set up a cool way for you to get an autographed copy of HERE COMES TROUBLE.
I live in northern Michigan where the economy has been the worst in the country. So I've decided to do my part and help out my neighbors by having my three favorite independent bookstores up here be the place where you can get an autographed first edition copy of my book shipped to you. In return, these local indie stores have agreed to donate $5 from every book sold to the local nonprofit arthouse, the State Theatre of Traverse City. I organized the restoration drive of this historic movie palace and opened it for the community in 2007.
All you have to do is click here to buy a signed first edition (there's no extra fee for this, just the normal retail price of the book plus shipping) and it will take you to either McLean & Eakin Booksellers in Petoskey, MI, Brilliant Books in Suttons Bay, or Saturn Booksellers in Gaylord. In doing so, you'll not only be helping out the good people where I live, you'll also be taking a stand for independent bookstores.

If you don't see your city yet, don't worry -- more will be added later. Remember -- each book sold at the above events will result in 50% of my royalties for those books being donated to the local libraries. I hope to see you as I criss-cross the country. Thank you for your support. And enjoy the book!
