Twin Cities Book Festival

The TCBF is coming in just a few short weeks! I’ll be staffing the Graywolf Press booth from 3-5 p.m. at the Progress Center on the north end of the state fairgrounds. Stop by and say hi!

Local Graywolf Press authors Ben Percy and Gretchen Marquette will be in attendance. Don’t miss them at the morning mingle from 10-11 a.m.

See you there!

Reading at Common Good Books

work_in_progress_readingI’m reading from the novel at Common Good Books on Thursday, November 6th at 7:00 pm. I’ll be sharing the room with the esteemed Robert Martin and Caitlin Bailey, who are likewise reading from their own manuscripts in progress. Come see what happens when you give the room (and the mic!) to a bunch of writers whose work isn’t yet bound between two covers.

It’s sure to be a high-wire night full of daring and bravado—or white-knuckled terror, depending on how easy/difficult it is to read from new work to a room full (one hopes) of friends. Ah, who am I kidding? It’s going to be a blast. Come for the wild ride because this lineup has never happened before and may never happen again.

For thrilling details like bios and so on, see the event listing at Common Good Books.

To make sure that I know you are coming so I know who’s going to be heckling me, join the Facebook event.

Thanks to the brilliant Jon Troutman for making this awesome event poster.

Thanks to David Enyeart at Common Good Books for hosting us.

And thanks to the Minnesota State Arts Board for making all this possible.
