If you follow me on Facebook, you know I just quit my day job. And while I suddenly have a lot more time for socializing and posing for pics with photogenic purple veggies, I’d love to see you at one of my three September readings — all of which are free and open to the public:

All Lit Up. (Facebook event page) Thursday, September 7, 7 pm, 126 N Larchmont Blvd., Los Angeles

I’ve wanted to be a part of this monthly series at Chevalier’s since forever — so this reading is a dream come true for me! I’ll be reading with poets Charif Shanahan (Wallace Stegner Fellow in Poetry at Stanford), Victoria Chang (recipient of a 2017 Guggenheim Fellowship) — and the wonderful Rich Ferguson (New Jersey Me) will emcee

Griffith Park Storytelling Series (a 90x90LA event). (Facebook event page) Sunday, September 24, 2017, 5 pm – 7 pm. In the Bronson Caves, Griffith Park (follow directions on website), Los Angeles

Back at the beginning of summer, I wrote about 90x90LA — and I’m psyched to be taking part in one of the series’ events! Spend an afternoon in the park listening to lit from Allison Conner, Lynell George, Daniel Jose Ruiz, Oscar Sagastume, and yours truly. Snacks and drinks will be provided.

Hope to see you at one or all three — Each will be pretty different, and I’ll wear three separate outfits, so you won’t be bored!
