Join us for a Twitter launch with Rob Hopkins on Thursday, October 13, 2011. Rob will be available to answer questions about himself and the Transition movement between 9am and 12pm EST (that’s 2pm – 5pm local time for Rob in the UK). All you have to do to take part is follow the hashtag #TTComp on Twitter, and include it in your own tweets to post a comment or question.

Rob’s new book, The Transition Companion, will be available exclusively through from this date until the official publication date of 27 October. You can even order your pre-publication copy and then pop over to Twitter to ask Rob to sign it for you!

Can’t make it? Don’t worry! You can still use the hash tag #TTComp to post your questions any time. Rob will be answering the questions during the session, and then we will share a transcript of the entire thing, to make sure that nobody misses out.
