It was inconceivable that book tour for a memoir about the cult classic “The Princess Bride” would be so short, but as many fans wished, five new dates have been added for fans in the western U.S., including another date in Los Angeles.

Ian reports that at the last scheduled date on the original calendar which landed Cary Elwes at the Barnes & Noble in Hollywood, Elwes was funny and charming and even gave fans his audition highlight–his Fat Albert impression. He refused to do that over the phone.

You can read about the book and the interview here.

So a miracle has happened and it may not be coated with chocolate to make it go down smoother, and you do have to wait more than a good hour before you can get in line.

So get ready to have fun storming the castles in Los Angeles (WeHo), Denver, Tempe (AZ), Portland and Seattle.

This is obviously a must-see, must-hear opportunity and you get your book signed as well.
