Before the Tattoo
Just a reminder that
I am reading at McNally Jackson tonight at is THE MOMENT reading if any of you are in the area and want something exciting to do in New York SITAY. McNally Jackson is one of my favorite bookstores in the area–it’s so beautiful and has a framtastic selection. I feel super excited to be reading at this event along with are such luminaries as A.J. Jacobs, Scott Dojny, Larry Smith and SO MANY MORE. They are going to project my art behind me and everything! It will be SO COOL.
UPDATE: Cancel the airfare! I have been BUMPED from the reading–too many cooler people want to do it, so I am only doing the reading on the 26th in Greenpoint. I have been promised drinks as comeuppance, which I am taking to mean that I don’t smell. I am just too INDIE for this crowd! I’ll be there anyway as part of the BROOKLYN TEAM (and we all know who’s more LEGIT these days in literary street cred–it Brooklyn, people!). Come on down!
And speaking of The Moment and BEING SO COOL:
Last week I got many Facebook, phonecalls, and text messages on Monday afternoon because (unknown to me) my story had been DISCUSSED on TALK OF THE NATION on NPR!! Larry Smith, the editor of The Moment was a guest of Neal Conan’s and my story was one of the moments they discussed. When I heard it later I almost PASSED OUT because Neal Conan called my story “a lovely piece.” You can hear the whole segment here or just read the highlights! SO THRILLED!
