Live literary events!

April 25, 2012

There are several events coming down the pike where I'll be reading, talking, performing and all other variations of "opening up my mouth and letting words spill out." I hope you can come check one or two out! This weekend you can actually check me out in Minneapolis, if you happen to be a Twin Cities sort of person (or know someone who is). After that I'll be bumming around sweet home Chicago.

Friday April 27

I'll be part of a Young Adult authors reading and talk at the Red Balloon Bookshop in Minneapolis at 7 p.m. with M. Molly Backes, author of The Princesses of Iowa and James Klise, the author of Love Drugged.

Saturday April 28
Molly, Jim and I will be panelling from 3:45–5 p.m.on the enticing topic “Then Suddenly, Without Warning” at the Loft The Children's and Young Adult Literature Conference

Thursday June 7
I make my debut at the reading series Story Club at Uncommon Ground, reading on the topic “Rites of Passage.”

Tuesday June 19
7-8:30 p.m. at the Hideout, I’ll be hosting my last Funny Ha-Ha before I take an unofficial “maternity leave” from running the show. The lineup is forthcoming but I’m planning on it featuring lots of old friends of the show.

Saturday June 30
Funny female fun at the Book Cellar with The Kates at 7 p.m.!
