Upcoming Event: Barrelhouse Launch Party

To celebrate their just-released Crime Issue, the good folks at Barrelhouse are hosting a launch party on Wednesday, March 7, at the Black Squirrel, 2427 18th Street NW (Adams Morgan) in Washington, DC. The evening kicks off at 7 p.m. and features three readers: Michelle Dove, Tara Laskowski, and me (the first time, to my knowledge, that my wife, Tara, and I have read together). I’ll be sampling from my story “Blue Plate Special,” and Tara will be reading from her story “The Etiquette of Homicide,” part of a series she’s been working on.
