Fall readings

I'll be reading a few times this fall — so far:

October 8 — NYC — "Behind the Book" benefit at KGB — with Lev Grossman (The Magicians) and Rivka Galchen (Atmospheric Disturbances) (This is, I believe, the third EP/RG reading).

October 25 — Sleepy Hollow (!!) — I'll be reading with Christine Lehner (Absent a Miracle) at the Hudson Valley Writers' Center.

November 12 — NYC — I team up again with Sung J. Woo (Everything Asian), this time at the Dirty Laundry reading series.
