Glowingly reviewed by The Kirkus Review, Booklist and gaming pioneer Jane McGonigal, John’s new book, “World Peace and Other 4th-Grade Achievements” which shares a title with Chris Farina’s documentary film will be out nationwide on April 2nd.

John will meet readers and sign his book at bookstores on a multiple city tour. National radio and television interviews are slated beginning with New York City studio programs. See the schedule and locations below.

This book release would of course not have been possible without the incredible vision, dedication of, and skillful shepherding by Cynthia Cannell of Cynthia Cannell Literary Agency, our editor Eamon Dolan and his magnificent staff at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH). The dedication and acknowledgements in the book read like a small city phone book as we truly have been standing on the shoulders of so many others.

HMH’s Media Specialist Taryn Roeder has developed this schedule of events and book signing tour for John. We hope to meet many readers and friends on stops across the US:
