Party! I’m celebrating the launch of The Halcyon Bird with A Room of One’s Own bookstore here in Madison, WI. If you’re in the area, come on down: we’ll be serving a Milanese aperitivo starting at 6, and I will read from all three books—including the one I’m working on—at 6:30 sharp. The event ends at 7:30 so the Room folks can go home to their families at a reasonable hour.
If, for some bizarre reason, you live somewhere else besides my beloved city, you can catch me at Book Passage in Corte Madera, CA, for a Small Business Saturday event. We are working on Chicago, Minneapolis, Portland, and a few other locations for the new year.
A Room of One’s Own recently merged with Avol’s Books, so now we have the best of two long-time Madison institutions under one roof. I love this place, and I am really looking forward to this shindig. I have already rehearsed my reading a couple of times; I notice that people have started telling each other that I read well, so all the practice I put in, honing accents and timing, seems to be yielding an enjoyable result.
Hope to see you there, or soon!
