San Francisco writer (and friend) Kevin Smokler is going to be in town on Thursday, July 7th to talk about his new book at the Harvard Book Store at 6:30 PM. I’m hosting a dinner afterwards at nearby Smile Thai Cafe. RSVP if you’d like to join us.
About BOOKMARK NOW: Writing in Unreaderly Times:
Offering a voyeuristic peek into the private, creative lives of today’s 20-something and 30-something writers, BOOKMARK NOW sheds light on what their work means at a time when the book business is changing, and yet storytelling via e-mail and weblogs seems more relevant than ever.
Itâ€™s Bookmark Nowâ€™s fifth bookstore event, our second week of touring and I still get scared 8 ways to silly before it happens. I wonder when Iâ€™ll get used to this? Christmas 2008 perhaps? Iâ€™ve seen concert films of bands that have been touring for 20 years and they still get the oleâ€™ sithers in the stomach before they go on. Maybe the fear puts you in game mode.
