Freedom and Dialogue in a Polarized World will come out in paperback in Fall 2015. Finally, it will be more affordable for the non-rich.
Please ask your local public or university library to use the attached flyer to order one of the last 42 hard-cover copies of Freedom and Dialogue in a Polarized World, so that U. Delaware Press will bring out a paperback edition in 2015, and people will at last be able to afford to buy this book!

It was great to present my talk about dialogic freedom to a packed audience at the Eugene Public Library last night. It probably helped to have a slide of a naked woman and a free book to give away. The crowd responded with enthusiasm and had great questions. It was also fun to sign books. I hope someone takes me up on the offer to come to a book group discussion!
On July 21 I leave to attend the 15th International Bakhtin Conference, in Stockholm, Sweden, where I will lead a round-table discussion about dialogic freedom, with Princeton Professor Caryl Emerson, the keynote speaker, and Sergeiy Sandler, and Israeli scholar and peace activist. This will be a great opportunity for me to talk about freedom with people from all over the world.
If your book group would like to read Freedom and Dialogue in a Polarized World without buying it, you can borrow up to five copies for six weeks for free. All you need to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org and be prepared to pay for postage. If your group meets within one hour of Eugene, Oregon, and you invite me to attend, I will come to if I can swing it.
Please come to the Eugene Public Library on Wednesday, August 27, at 6:00 pm, to hear my presentation about Freedom and Dialogue in a Polarized World.
An hour of talk radio with calls from listeners. What a fun way to get a discussion going about dialogic freedom! http://ijpr.org/programs/jefferson-exchange

Eric Allen interviewed me on KLCC, and although he had to cut my favorite part about Priam retrieving the corpse of Hector from Achilles in the Iliad, it was a fun opportunity to reach out to listeners. You can hear the interview at http://klcc.org/post/freedom-and-dialogue-polarized-world
Please come to J. Michael's Books at 160 E. Broadway, Eugene, OR, between 2 and 3 pm, Saturday, March 22, to help me celebrate the publication of Freedom and Dialogue in a Polarized World. There will be food, fun, and a drawing for a free copy of my book! To order your own copy, call 541-342-2002.
Welcome to my blog about dialogic freedom. I hope to launch a conversation about a concept that I think has great resonance for our polarized culture.
