Readings this week in Minneapolis, Racine

I’ve got a busy week in front of me, with readings scheduled at the Err Artist Collective in Minneapolis and Bonk! in Racine, WI, Wednesday February 22 and Saturday February 25th, respectively.

If you’re happening across this website and live in either the Minneapolis or Racine area, I hope you’ll come out to hear me read. I’ll be reading from The Fugue and talking about the artist’s role in a fascist state.

I love the Twin Cities…

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.

Reading tonight: SubText Books, St. Paul, Minnesota

The good folks at Hamline University’s MFA program were kind enough to invite me to talk to students about publishing and writing. I’ll be meeting with them today in the afternoon.

In the evening, I’ll give a reading at SubText bookstore in downtown St. Paul.

If you’re stumbling onto my blog for the first time, be sure to read this glowing review of my novel, The Fugue, in the Chicago Tribune.

By the way, it’s Record Store Day, and Eclipse Records are right next door.
