Get ready for the Rebel Buddha Book Tour! Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche's new book is the biggest Buddhist book in a long time. The official publication date is November 9th, 2010, but we were lucky enough to receive a shiny new copy in our office today. We'll be covering Rebel Buddha in the Tricycle Book Club at tricycle.com in November, and you can also catch the author in his various stops around the country on the Book Tour, in which Rinpoche will be joined by other western Buddhist figures in a panel discussion.
The tour kicks off on November 14 in New York, N.Y. at the Cooper Union's Great Hall. The tour will continue on to Halifax, Toronto and Boulder and will conclude in Seattle.
