This past weekend, I got the opportunity to address students at Hamline University’s MFA program, then to read from The Fugue to an audience gathered at the gorgeous SubText Books in downtown St. Paul.
This was among the most successful events I’ve ever had. I was so impressed with Hamline’s students, with the staff at SubText—they take extra steps to support the readers and presenters who offer their wares—and with the Twin Cities in general. I can’t wait to go back.
Fans of literary fiction in the Twin Cities area who stumble on this post should know that SubText currently has two signed copies of The Fugue in stock. So if you had been interested in going but couldn’t make it, a consolation prize awaits.
I must express enormous gratitude to the West Egg Literati, the student organization at Hamline that invited me, and to SubText for giving an independent author an opportunity.
