On Tuesday, August 2, my wife Tara and I will be reading at Quencher’s Saloon in Chicago as part of the Wit Rabbit Reading Series, curated by Sarah Meltzer Allen—a good friend from our grad school days at Mason—and Sara Wainscott. We’re very much looking forward to the event, getting together with old friends, making new ones, and reading together—in the big, big city!
The Facebook event page for the evening is here, including full bios on all the featured readers, also including James Tadd Adcox, whose work includes the novel Does Not Love and the story collection The Map of the System of Human Knowledge, and Naomi Huffman, editor-in-chief at Curbside Splendor and the managing editor at featherproof books.
I hope that friends in Chicago will join us for the evening!
Looking back as well as forward, here are a couple of blog posts I’ve written recently:
- At Criminal Minds on becoming an “overnight success” (not!)
- At SleuthSayers on rereading books and rewatching movies
And stay tuned soon for more information on my appearance on North Carolina Bookwatch on UNC-TV, at the Ellen Coolidge Burke Library in Alexandria, VA, and at the Suffolk Mystery Authors Festival in Suffolk, VA—a busy month ahead!
