Book tour, woo! In Pittsburgh, there is the “main one”: Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures (here’s Ottessa Moshfegh signing my copy of her book there: https://x.com/MR_INFO_Mark/status/1103695418859364352?s=20) but I think you might be better suited for the indie route you mention, in which case White Whale Bookstore is a good option (here’s Celeste Ng signing my copy of her book there: https://x.com/MR_INFO_Mark/status/1695097033609130101?s=20) Forgive me if I made that more about me, haha.
