5/22/13: Saints and Sinners Literary Festival, 5/23-5/26

I'm thrilled to participate in the 10th Annual Saints and Sinners Literary Festival in New Orleans this weekend! Where else can I rub elbows with Dorothy Allison, Justin Torres, and the hundreds of other great readers and panelists assembled this year.
