Catch me in New York City on September 30 and October 2

Liars’ League NYC Presents Accident & Emergency
New Yorkers! I’m participating in two events next week that I hope you’ll be able to come out and see:

Monday, September 30: 7:30-10:30 pm
Write This Down: A Creative Nonfiction Reading Series
Branded Saloon, 603 Vanderbilt Ave., Brooklyn

At the “Back to School” edition of this new nonfiction series, I’ll be reading “Words and Phrases You Must Never Use in Utah,” a personal essay about my time as a novice cusser at the Clarion Workshop. Also appearing are David Lawson, Rhonda Hansome, and David Rothman (a couple of whom you might have caught at Line Break). Join us in Prospect Heights.

Wednesday, October 2: 7:00-9:00 pm
Liars’ League NYC presents Accident & Emergency
KGB Bar, 85 E. 4th St., Manhattan

At this long-running series, original short stories are read by professional actors. My new short story “Harper’s Guitar” (a self-contained chapter from my crime novel in progress) will get the Liars’ League treatment. Also featured are stories by Rachel Lyon, Katherine Shaw, and Arthur Longworth. Join us in the East Village.

I hope to see you on one or both nights!
