Lisa McMann on Her Cross-Country Bookstore Tour

Getting ready for my bookstore tour!

My husband, upcoming Putnam (@penguinkids) debut author Matt McMann, and I had been intentionally living without a vehicle for the past four years, opting to experience life without wheels in walkable cities like Sacramento, Calif., and currently in Tempe, Ariz. But the shiny 2007 convertible that my 81-year-old dad had lovingly cared for (and hardly driven—it only had 22,000 miles on it) was too hard to pass up. The only problem was that my parents—and the car—were far away, in Holland, Mich. We could ship the convertible home (boring!) or we could drive it, and turn the trip into a cross-country adventure and see some sights along the way (ding ding ding!).
