Later this year Tim embarks on an “In Conversation” tour of Australia and New Zealand, talking about his first non-fiction book: “You Don’t Have To Have A Dream (Advice for the Incrementally Ambitious)

Tim: “Australasian compadres: Chuffed here to announce a wee Aus/NZ Book Tour in late Sept / early Oct. It’ll just be me and a lovely, smart facilitator/interviewer sitting* on chairs and chatting about the ideas in You Don’t Have To Have A Dream, and answering some of your questions. *I might stand up if I feel strongly about something.”

In conversation with special guest interviewers (yet to be announced), hear Tim share his inimitable thoughts and advice on life, art, success, kindness, love and thriving in a meaningless universe. Drawing from his legendary university commencement addresses, Tim’s rallying cry for creativity, critical thinking, and compassion in our daily lives will touch the science-loving reality-romantic in all of us.

Tim: “Although I’m a bit nervous to be sitting on a stage without a piano to sugar the pill of my opinions with, I’m really excited to dig deeper into some of the ideas I explore in this book. And, knowing the calibre of my interlocutors and my audiences, I’m sure the chat will push out beyond just those!”

Any chance these book tour convos will be recorded so those of us in the States can listen/watch at our leisure? Or will these book tour convos be turned into a book at a later date? Ha ha! :)

Devo that your not coming to Darwin you have a huge fan base here please consider us we always get left out of these smaller tours. Dee and your band of merry Tim supporters.

Hello Tim,
You have many fans in Canberra. Would you consider adding us to your itinerary? We’d love to see you.

Kind regards,

Jennifer Pitino on 20th of June 2024

Plz come to Central California coast. You’ll love it here. Would love to see you 🌞💜✨

Once again the Aussies and New Zealanders strike it rich with doses of Tim in their shopfronts. While the rest of the world has to hold it’s collective breath and wait patiently for their chance to catch a bit of the convo.

I seriously need a change of scenery apparently. Hope everyone has a great time.

Especially Tim.
