Daybreak Tour Heads to PA, ME, MA, and CA
The Daybreak book tour is rolling along and has stopped in 20 of the scheduled 48 cities already. The Miami, Fla., stop saw a hall packed to capacity with a crowd standing in the back and unable to get in, and the evening filmed by C-Span's Book TV. Watch for it on your television or computer in the coming weeks.
