KGB Bar reading and NYC

Friday night at the KGB bar in the East Village is like Saturday night at the Apollo (at least for me, anyway). So many people show up to hear a good reading on the strength of the bar's literary reputation, and I hope we didn't disappoint. I was plenty nervous! There were some great readings from GD Peters, Shya Scanlon, Peter Schwartz, Robert Lopez, Ken Sparling, and others. Many kudos to Paula Bomer for setting everything up. And thanks to Michael Pollack, Dawn Raffel, and Heather Fowler who showed up in support—it's nice to see familiar faces in a strange city.

Were we bummed that the New York Public Library was closed because of its summer hours? You betcha.
