Two events: Joyland Night at Word Brooklyn and AWP Chicago
Word Brooklyn is a great bookstore that’s launching its online ebook storefront. They’ve invited Joyland to put together a reading and talk this February 8 at 7PM. I’ll be reading—maybe from The Consumed Guide, definitely from I, Tania—along with my co-publisher Emily Schultz and Joyland author Jim Hanas. We’ll be giving away print copies of Joyland Retro to anyone who buys an ebook in-store. It’s a fascinating meeting- halfway-point for anyone following the digital versus brick-and-mortar store discussion. More info here.
Joyland will be running a table at this year’s AWP book fair in Chicago. We’ll also be hosting a reading night at Quimby’s with Dzanc Books featuring readers Jeff Parker, Kevin Chong, Eugene Cross and Megan Stielstra. That is Thursday March 1 at 7PM. More info here. I would like to thank Quimby’s for the second chance. My last event–with a pre-Mayor Rahm Dan Sinker— ran up against a freak hailstorm and the penultimate episode of Lost.
