The Gin Closet comes out in paperback this May, which means I’ll no longer have to ask people to spend thirty dollars to buy it. I’ll be doing some west-coast events for the launch. Details forthcoming, but here are the basics:
Saturday, April 30: “Close Portraits” panel at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. 12:30 pm, USC campus.
Monday, May 2: Reading at Village Books, Pacific Palisades, CA, 7:30 pm.
Wednesday, May 4: Reading at Latitude 33, Laguna Beach, CA.
And a reading in Chicago in June (with the lovely and talented Kiki Petrosino)*:
Thursday, June 2: Women and Children First Bookstore.
*Kiki is a good friend from my days at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, author of a gorgeous first book of poems called Fort Red Border. Many of the poems in this book are about Robert Redford, which rocks. Kiki and I have explored the hills of Iowa (yes, they exist) and the sand dunes of the Gobi, but we’ve never done a joint reading. It’s long overdue. More on her (and the reading) closer to the time.
