On December 2 and 3, I'll be attempting the seldom-seen, possibly-dangerous, definitely-foolhardy literary biathlon. Fortunately, I'll be accompanied by one of my writing friends and heroes, Joseph Peterson, for both events.
The first event will kick off on Friday December 2 at 6:00 PM at the Seminary Co-Op Bookstore in Hyde Park. This event will commemorate the official release of Joe's newest book Memorandum from the Iowa Cloud Appreciation Society. Joe will give a reading from his new book and I'll get the chance to ask him questions about it. I've read this already, folks, and it's one of his best. I can't wait to pick his brain about it.
The second leg of the biathlon will take place on Saturday December 3 at 3:00 PM and it promises to be a less buttoned-up affair -- a joint reading by Joe and me at our favorite Southside watering hole, Jimmy's Woodlawn Tap. We'll read from our new novels, sign a few books, and tip a few beverages while we do it. It'd be great to have you as company.
I'm hoping you'll have a chance to join us for any or all of this odyssey!
