If you live in New York City and you are looking for something to do this Friday, and if you like books, and if you like watching people who write books reading from those books, then this is just the post for you:
I’ll be joining author Grant Stoddard at KGB in the scenic Lower East Side to read from our work. I’ll be reading from my forthcoming book In The Event Of My Untimely Demise. Last time I read the chapter about travel being important because it lets you complain about other cultures more effectively. This time I’m thinking about reading the chapter about respecting your elders, but only the smart ones.
Grant? Not sure. I think it’s a new book he’s working on. Something about taking advantage of press junkets.
Grant’s last book was Working Stiff: The Misadventures of an Accidental Sexpert. I felt obligated to buy and read the book because I see Grant on a regular basis. Fortunately the book was an enjoyable read, detailing his going from a misfit English virgin to a career as sex columnist for Nerve.com. Basically it’s a titillating book of seedy stories about a thin guy with a charming Essex accent dragging his pee-pee around Manhattan with not a modicum of shame.
KGB is located in the Lower East Side
