I’ll be doing two events this week:
Wednesday, June 10: The Biggest Beatrice Reading Yet
If you were at last week’s “Beatrice at the Merc” season finale, you know how awesome the combination of debut novelists and the singer/songwriters of the Bushwick Book Club can be—but if you missed it, I’ve got good news: Next Wednesday, June 10, I’m going back to the Slipper Room (167 Orchard St.) with four writers—Judy Blundell, Matthew Aaron Goodman, Theresa Rebeck, and Sung J. Woo—and five musicians—Franz Nicolay, Susan Hwang, Dibson Hoffweiler, Tom Curtin, and Phoebe Kreutz—and we’re going to put on another no cover/cash bar extravaganza. (Doors open 7 p.m.)
Sunday, June 14: BooksNJ
BooksNJ2009 brings together writers and readers
90 authors, illustrators, and poets up close and personal
talking about their books and their craft
Crafts for kids
The event is free and open to everyone.
I’ll be doing a panel called The Immigrant Experience with Wendy Lee and Ed Lin.
