So here’s a link to the event at Stories Bookstore in Echo Park.
Here’s the blurb, put together by the host, Ben Loory
It’s a reading! People will read. The following people:
It will be good! JS Breukelaar will be here all the way from AUSTRALIA! Doing her first reading ever! In her entire life! From American Monster, her first novel, coming soon from Lazy Fascist Press. And everyone else will be reading other stuff, whatever the hell they want! Who can say? It’s a mystery. Also there might be liquor. ???
>>>>>>>> TOTALLY FREE!! <<<<<<<<
And it’s true. It is my first reading ever. Except for the one I did at Tin House Summer Workshop when I was sick. I wrote about that. You can read about it here. But I have never read before, not really. Not in public, like with other writers whose work I admire. You should really read Ben’s book. I’ve downloaded it to my Kindle and am starting it now and I’m mesmerized. Ray Bradbury blurbed it. So there’s that.
I didn’t put Ben up to making this be the American Monster Edition. He did that all by himself. Maybe my wily publisher, Cameron Pierce, put him up to it. I’ll never know.
