In five days, the paperback edition of Everything Asian will be hitting the shelves. Pick one up! Tell your friends! And if your friend is Oprah, be sure to give her a copy!
Anyway, back to reality. Tomorrow I’ll be visiting the West Windsor Library in Princeton Junction for an event titled “Studio Scrawl: The Art of the Short-Short Story.” I did this presentation at Pingry for their students a little while back and it went over well, so I’ll once again be singing the praises of J. Robert Lennon and his awesome short-short stories. If you still haven’t read Pieces for the Left Hand, man, am I jealous. I wish I could read it for the first time all over again.
Next Friday at 9pm (7/23), I’ll be at the Asian American Writers’ Workshop’s Mouth to Mouth Open Mic featuring Ali Wong and yours truly. It’s my paperback launch, so come on out for some good literature and comedy.
