Exciting news (maybe predictable too?) Kevin has agreed to join us for a conversation about his book sometime in June, but being that he is such a great talent, his schedule is busy and a tad, 'up in the air'. Kevin is working on confirming a discussion date with us, but has to confirm some other previous engagements first, but he will join us!
