This fall, road warriors Davy and Peter Rothbart are hurtling your way on FOUND Magazine’s 10th Anniversary Tour, which celebrates the release of Davy’s book of personal essays, My Heart is an Idiot, Peter’s new album You Are What You Dream, and a brand-new issue of FOUND.

The Rothbart Brothers are hopping back in the tour van, FOUND treasures in tow, for an epic cross-country romp, with stops in 37 states and 75 cities! At each exhilarating show, Davy (FOUND’s plucky point guard) will share the latest magnificent and mesmerizing finds that’ve landed in the mailbox here at FOUND HQ, plus outrageous tales from his new book and his work on public radio’s “This American Life,” while Peter (FOUND’s international heartthrob) will dazzle with beautiful, haunting, and hilarious songs based on FOUND notes. Come on out and join us!

Davy Rothbart is the creator of Found Magazine, a frequent contributor to This American Life, and author of the story collection The Lone Surfer of Montana, Kansas. He writes regularly for GQ and Grantland, and his work also appears in The New Yorker, The New York Times, and The Believer. His forthcoming book of personal essays is called My Heart is an Idiot, out in September, 2012, from Farrar, Straus & Giroux. He lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan and Los Angeles, California.

Peter Rothbart is an award-winning songwriter, and the frontman for folk/rock group The Poem Adept. His third solo album, You Are What You Dream, will be released in fall 2012, and his music was featured in McSweeney’s Wholphin DVD and the 2012 documentary film Mister Rogers & Me. He is also an editor at FOUND Magazine, and the executive director of the urban gardening organization We Patch. He lives in Seattle, Washington.

“Davy Rothbart has the humor and purity of heart you want and need in an observer of contemporary American life. Without guile and with a belief in small towns, underdogs, love at first sight, the pull of the road, and the soulfulness of strangers, Rothbart is a kind of new-styled Bill Moyers — genuine, wide-eyed and hopeful.”
–Dave Eggers

    As a big fan of Found, I’d love to go! Plus, my heart is also an idiot, so I think I have a lot in common with Davy.

    Found makes me so happy– not only has it inspired me to keep my eyes open for treasures, but it also has putting the things that might have been treasures into the recycling.

    My girlfriend and I work in the found materials medium and would love to help keep Portland weird and green.

    this might feed my hoarding habit, o’ my treasured enabler, pdxpipeline.

    FOUND allows me to be a voyeur of the hoarder without having to personally sacrifice my sanity by ignoring my OCD tendencies. For that, I would like to raise a glass to them in salute.
