Upcoming Events & Where Should I Read?


For my Chicago area fans I have two great events coming up this weekend and I hope you can make it to one or both of them.

Friday the 25th at the Tamale Hut Cafe, 8300 W. Cermak in North Riverside, I'll be reading at 7:30 pm. I'll probably do an excerpt from Ballads and maybe just maybe share a sneak peek of what I'm working on. Also to further entice you, there is a two for one deal on tamales (which are soooooo good) and it's BYOB and there is an open mic. So my fellow writers, come read your stuff!

Then on Sunday the 27th at 2 pm, I'll be reading at The Old School Records at 7446 W. Madison in Forest Park as part of Arts Fest. Two amazing local authors Billy Lombardo and Don Evans will be reading with me and Tim Broderick will be doing some cool artwork in front of the store.

So please come to these if you can!

Now for those of you who are NOT in Chicago, post-wedding I'm hoping to plan a little bit of travel. Not much, cause I'm broke, but I am hoping to get up to Madison, Wisconsin and I do have a Southwest airfare voucher that needs spending. I was thinking of going to NYC, but I figured I'd try to see where I'd get the biggest turnout. So who wants to see me read where? Worst case scenario if I can't come see you now, hopefully when I have another book out, I'll have money to do a mini tour again.

If you come to Baltimore or DC, you have a place to stay. ;-)

The Borders in Columbia, MD (halfway between the two cities) is supposedly the top Borders for YA fiction in the entire chain (as of a couple years ago when I talked to the manager).

I would absolutely love it if you did make it up to Madison!

Well, of course I would love it if you came here again (Los Angeles, for those not Stephanie) but I'm not sure you'd get the biggest crowd here. NYC or San Francisco might be better. (If you decide on New York, let me know and I'll hook you up with Nova. If you decide to come here, of course please tell me what I can do to help set up.)

Bay area!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You can stay with me. And the weather will likely be nicer than it would be in NYC....

Kelsey said...

Come up to International Falls, though I doubt you would want to, but it is hot now, but then again we don't even have a bookstore, so....

New York! New York!

Y'know, Southwest's base of operations is Dallas. You should totally come . . . on a weekend, when I can drive up to see you.

P.S. Dallas has cool indies, and you can drive down to Ausin which has cool indie bookstores and great music.
