Join me at Lit Crawl L.A.!


Okay, y’all—have I got a fun night out for you! Pizza AND literature! I’m part of the Los Angeles Lit Crawl, an evening of literary readings in the Noho Arts District on Wed., October 26. I’m gonna be reading from my book at MOD Pizza in North Hollywood (5300 N. Larnkershim) with some real-io, trul-io terrifyingly talented bad hombres and nasty women, including David Ulin, Robert Roman, J. Ryan Stradal, Matthew Specktor, and Natashia Deón. My round starts at 9 pm, but you can do it! Take a disco nap and come on out! Would love to see some friendly faces!
