  • American Ending Across America! I want to do an event or be chosen by a book club in all 50 states. Send a pic of your book club & the state you're in to mkzurav@gmail.com. With enough notice and a ticket, maybe I could show up live or on Zoom.
  • Book tour was a blast, with audiences in festivals, bookstores, and mining towns. I'm still available for that, along with appearing live or via Zoom at book clubs.
  • If you're a high school teacher who wants to discuss American Ending with your class, I may be able to help you get free copies for your students.
  • Please direct all media and speaking inquiries to MKZ at mkzurav@gmail.com
