Make the jump to Red Room where I have blogged about two recent readings here on my home turf. You won’t want to miss it. Stay tuned, too, for some digital audio from the readings which will be posted here and at Red Room.
I’ve been invited to read at the Ruskin Art Club in Los Angeles as part of the Ruskin Reading Series sponsored by Red Hen Press. Founded in 1888, the Ruskin Art Club is the oldest and one of the most respected associations in Los Angeles. Past writers that have read at the club include Galway Kinnell, Joy Harjo, Percival Everett, Li-Young Li, Chris Abani, Marvin Bell, and many others.
My reading is slated for May 18, 2009. If you are in the L.A. area next May, by all means, drop by.
I have been invited to read at this year’s Rocky Mountain Writers’ Festival on April 7th in Pocatello, Idaho–not too far, as it happens, from Soda Springs, the town in which my book takes place. I will also be teaching a class at Idaho State University. Now in its 18th year, the RMWF will run from April 7th–April 12th. Please visit their website for location information. Also reading at this year’s festival is the hugely talented Paisley Rekdal. Stay tuned for more details.
