Moustaches, Math, and Merriment!

Last weekend's book signing/presentation at Vroman's Bookstore in Pasadena was a blast!

I tried donning a moustache and reading from my new book, The Joy Of Math, but apparently kids aren't that excited by math and moustaches on Saturday mornings. Go figure!
So I read them HUGO, did some drawing, and fed them some cake. When in doubt, give them cake!

Thanks to everyone who came out.
If you didn't make it, here's a super condensed video version of what you missed:

Special thanks to Tom Warburton for being my crowd wrangler! He seemed to use the "BOO" sign quite a bit but I probably deserved it!


  1. What talent. If one idea is slow, try another and it worked. Thanks for sharing your confident freedom and creativity. Hope to read about the Really....Long String very soon.
    All the best, Maralee Burdick Knowlen

  2. A great video, but you only get an itty-bitty taste of all the laughing and applauding actually went on.

    You're quite the showman, dude. If these kinds of shenanigans happen at all of your events, I predict that Hugo is just the first of many.

    All the best and continued success,
    Steve @ Vroman's

  3. Bobby, I'm so proud of you and what you have accomplished. Congratulations! All the Best, Micki

  4. Thanks, Micki. I hope all's well with you!
