I'm excited to read with fellow writer and Baltimorean Jessica Anya Blau at Barnes & Noble (JHU location) on July 14th (12 pm to 1 pm). We'll be reading from our latest releases, The Wonderbread Summer and The Tide King, respectively, and signing and talking and getting big frappes with whipped creme at the Starbucks Cafe.
