Ask Neil Young on Twitter about his book "Waging Heavy Peace"

Last month, Neil Young took questions from fans on Twitter and it was quite amusing. As we all know, Neil Young is considered to be a "Social Networking Genius" who has always been ahead of the curve while behind the 8 ball.

Neil's last Twitter session made some news and seems to have been a huge hit in the Twitter-verse. At one point, the hashtag #AskNeil trended up to the #2 position.

Now comes word that Neil Young will do a Book Club Twitter Chat, sponsored by Blue Rider Press and Penguin Online, on Wednesday, the 28th of November, 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm (ET), when he will be taking questions about Waging Heavy Peace. To participate and for updates, follow @BlueRiderPress, @PenguinUSA, @NeilYoung

Thanks Dave!

The rescheduling comes as no surprise as he´s at the daily show taping around the time he would have done that. I´d be surprised if he´d managed to do both.
