I have tried google and message boards and the publisher's site to no avail. Any idea where I can get an official 2006 David Foster Wallace reading or book signing or appearance schedule?

I can only seem to find stuff that just happened or single event listings from bookstores that are nowhere near me (for their store only, that is). Thanks!

Have you tried telephoning his publisher? He does seem to be a hard person to track down

Well, he's working at Pomona as the Disney Professor of Creative Writing, so if all else fails, you may be able to contact him there. His publisher appears to have nothing about a book tour on their [regrettable] website, though it looks like they had information there about past book tours.

Fun fact: I took a writing class from DFW in 1988 when he was two years out of college.

His publicist got back to me:

David's just completed his short tour, I'm sorry to say. He was in NYC for an event at Strand on 1/11, LA's Hammer Museum on 1/15 and SF's Booksmith on 1/16.
Thanks,
Marlena

Too bad. That's it.
