Tonight I’ll actually be doing my first reading at Subterranean Books in the Delmar Loop. Sub Books is a cool lil indie store in a great area of the city. Just last month they started a new event called Emerging Writers where they have new writers, local authors, and poets do readings on the first Wednesday of each month. I wasn’t able to attend the very first event since I was in Toledo in May, but I will be there tonight. I’ll be reading from my latest book, Are You Sitting Down?.
Its been a bit nerve wrecking trying to decide which chapter to read. I think I have it narrowed down to two. I’m going to make my final decision based on the age range of the crowd tonight.
In 2003, I did a book club discussion in Memphis and a book signing for my first book, but I did not read from my book for a group back then. So, I’m anxious, nervous, and excited about tonight’s event. I’m also donating copies of my book to the store to sell. So, if you are in the area, please come out and support me. And support this great community bookstore too!
