If you live in Los Angeles, I'll be reading aloud some short fiction at Hope Gallery in Silverlake this Thursday. Chicago music writer Jessica Hopper will also be reading. The full announcement can be viewed here. It's no big deal if you want to come but cannot - I'll do more of these things. But this one is free, and if I become a big shot at some point in the future and my shows cost $80 a seat, then you may be upset with yourself and I cannot take responsibility for that.
