The six-week book tour for “Making Piece” took place April/May 2012 — via RV (aka The Beast, the same one that is featured in the book). In December 2012, Beth drove the RV from Iowa to Newtown, Connecticut bringing 240 homemade pies to the grieving families and residents after the tragic shooting. As research for her next book,”World Piece,” Beth recently traveled to Tokyo, Japan where she taught pie making to local business people. Stay tuned for her continuing adventures and events and her 2014 Book Tour for her cookbook, “MS. AMERICAN PIE,” in stores April 15, 2014.
