Reading at the Enoch Pratt Free Library, January 26, 2 pm, Wheeler Auditorium

Many thanks to the Friends of the Enoch Pratt Free Library for booking me to read from The Tide King and talk about stuff, like libraries. Seriously, aren't libraries awesome? Also, it would be awesome if you could come. The Wheeler Auditorium is huge! For more information, please go here. There will be books for sale, and if it helps you in the door, I will make rum-soaked cookies, too.
