Hi all. Just a note to let you know that I’ve been invited to read at the inaugural event for 826LA’s new Echo Park location. It’ll be low-key affair with a few cocktails beforehand. For those of you know aren’t familiar with 826LA, it’s the non-profit group founded by Dave Eggers (of McSweeney’s publishing and “A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius” fame) that helps kids with their reading and writing skills. More at the link below.
You might call this an invitation but I’m not one to invite my friends to a couple of hours of potentially painful readings so, if you enjoy that sort of thing or if you’re really desperate to hear what I’ve been working on for two years, stop on by. I’ll be reading the opening from The Novel.
Here’s the info:
No idea about parking.
