I own and have listened to all 3 of your audiobooks. I cannot tell you what joy you writings have brought to my life!
I know you came to Birmngham, Alabama last year, and I was devestated that all tickets were sold out before I could snag one!
Your writing touches my soul.
I found out too late your were in Atlanta, Georgia last week.
Are you anywhere in the south any time soon?

Mr. McCourt, you are my absolute favorite author. I have always been a non-fiction buff but your memoirs have reopened my love for reading as well as writing. Your books are a testimony that many people live a life that fiction cannot touch. I do not have a favorite book out of the three- each one offers a different set of thoughts, feelings and growth. I am very glad you are getting the acclaim you deserve.

Does Frank McCourt have a schedule posted somewhere on the web to show where he will be next? Thanks

Does anyone know if Mr. McCourt has any upcoming book signings in or near New York City? I would really love to get a signed copy of Teacher Man for my friend.

Mr McCourt, you are my favorite writer. I saw you at a lecture in Boise ID a couple of years ago for my 18th birthday and you are just as hillarious in person. You are an inspiration to teachers, college students, immigrants, writers, and everyday people. After reading Teacher Man I feel bad for being a loud mouth to my High School english teacher.

Dear Mr. McCourt,
I have read all three of your memoirs, and found each of them insightful, entertaining, and well worth the read. I have just finished reading "Teacher Man" I am a retired secondary History and Social Science teacher, and your experiences duplicate mine, although in a differenct setting - a suburban school system.
I learned a great deal from reading this latest, and would like to share with you some of my thoughts. I have written a series of free verse essays on teaching and learning. I would be only to happy to send you a copy for your comment. Is there a way to get in touch with you directly?
Thanks for any interest, and please, continue your writing - it's great!

Dear Mr. McCourt,
My daughter was a student of yours at Sty High School. She is now a mother of two boys living in Sty town with her husband.The boys attend PS 40 on E. 20th. I would like to give her a signed copy of your book for Christmas. Is there any way I can send it to you for you to sign for her. Best regards
My mother was Margaret Mary Duffy, first generation American. My grandparents both came from Fanad Head.

Is the Frank McCourt who owns the Los Angeles Dodgers the same Frank McCourt who wrote "Angela's Ashes"? If so, why is one fact acknowleged when the other is discussed? And, if not, are the two related?
