Reading at Prairie Lights Books in Iowa City


I’ll be reading in Iowa City Friday, January 31st with Amanda Auerbach, who’ll be reading from her new book What Need Have We for Such as We. This reading will be a bit of a homecoming for me. The reading starts at 7pm, but I’ll be there earlier in the cafe, having a few beers to get my nerves up. Feel free to say hello before the reading.  If you’re able,  RSVP to the Facebook invite here.

Two Upcoming Readings
