As I have mentioned here recently, I have been invited to read and sit on a couple of panels at the 2009 Get Lit! festival in Spokane, Washington. This year, they are hosting a cyber-panel of festival authors who respond to the question, “What Keeps Me Writing?” I have posted my response to their question on my Red Room author blog.
Anthony Doerr and I will be reading our essays from the forthcoming anthology, The Book of Dads: Essays on the Perils, Joys, and Humiliations of Fatherhood on May 6th at the University of Idaho. The event is sponsored by the UI Campus Bookstore, and will be free and open to the public. Editor Ben George will introduce the book and the readings. Check back for details and updates.
