All are invited to join John Boik as he engages visitors of several blogs in January, 2013 as part of a virtual book tour for “Creating Sustainable Societies: The Rebirth of Democracy and Local Economies.” On the day of each tour stop, the host will post an original article written by John, and John will be available from 10 AM to 8:00 PM Pacific time to respond to any questions/comments that visitors post in reaction to the article. Some blogs will also post an excerpt from the book. The tour coincides with release of a revised version (0.9.09) of the book, posted to this website on January 3, 2013.
