For all you folks in New York City who were complaining that I never come to see you when I tour: FINE. I’M COMING. Are you happy now?
Specifically, I’m coming to be a part of this, sponsored by the New York Public Library:

So, yeah: That’s going to be pretty damn awesome.
You want to go? I know, silly question. The good news is, it’ll be free. But the NYPL asks if you would be so kind as to register, so they have at least some clue as to how many people will show up. Go here and follow the link at the bottom of the page to register.
So there, New York. Soon I will be in you. And oh, the fun we will have.
