Appearance at 2013 Fall for the Book
I'm very excited to add George Mason University' Fall for the Book festival to my list of fall reading engagements. Past readers have included Michael Chabon (who I saw speak last year and who was wonderful), Neil Gaiman, Laura Lippman, Emma Straub, Laura Ellen Scott, and Laura van den Berg. The week-long festival will be held from September 22-27, 2013. Check my Events page for updates on my forthcoming events. And don't forget! I kick off my 2013 book tour for Could You Be With Her Now this Saturday right here in Baltimore at the 510 Reading Series with Roy Kesey, Tara Laskowski, and Justin Sirois. Joseph Young will guest host.
