Our team of talented authors is hitting the road in May and June for a WordTasting Tour across the western United States and Canada. From minimalism and travel to storytelling, humor, and live music, this tour provides a taste of something for everyone. The Minimalists will host and read at the 24 WordTasting above events, accompanied by authors Colin Wright, Josh Wagner, and Shawn Mihalik; violinist Skye Steele; and special local guests for an evening of WordTasting: readings, stories, live music, questions, and answers.

Admission to each two-hour event is free. So are the words. Come get a taste of something simple, unique, indie: WordTasting. See for a complete list of the tour’s 32 cities, including eight additional stops without The Minimalists in California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and Idaho.

Everything That Remains Tour 2014

Throughout 2014, The Minimalists embarked on a 100-city tour across the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, & Australia to share their story and celebrate their new book, Everything That Remains. More than 75,000 people registered to hear Joshua and Ryan talk about minimalism and answer scores of questions. Admission to all 111 events was free. So were the thousands of hugs that were dished out. (Find a complete list of cities here.)
