This Friday, I’ll be participating in the Dire Literary Series in Cambridge, MA. Joining me are writers Jen Grow, winner of the Dzanc Books Short Story Collection Competition for My Life as a Mermaid, and Kathy Flann, winner of the 2014 George Garret Fiction Prize (her collection, Get a Grip, has a story about Estonians.).
If you’re in the Boston area (and you New Yorkers are only a cheap Chinatown bus ride away), it would be great to see you at the reading. I haven’t been to Cambridge since the spring of 2000, so I’m really looking forward to this trip.
It’s going to be an adventure reminiscent of my backpacking days. I’m flying in, giving the reading, then taking the red eye out of Boston Saturday morning to relieve a babysitter. My shelter on Friday night will most likely be Logan airport. Just like the good old days!
This reading series is interesting because it starts out as an open mic, then the “featured readers” take over in the 2nd half. The signup is at 6:00.
