Crushed by the grading wave these last few weeks, this is the first chance I've had to express my gratitude to Penina Roth of the Franklin Park Reading Series and the good folks at Electric Literature, who had me down to Brooklyn back in November for a reading with Matt Sumell, Ben Greenman, Colson Whitehead and Jim Shepard. You can read Julia Jackson's story about the reading here. Suffice it to say, I was thrilled to take part in the festivities. Doesn't get much better for a Monday night.
here. They're such a great fusion of literature and the digital arts.
The main highlight of the evening, of course, was the chance to hear Shepard and Whitehead read. Sumell and Greenman, too. Good times, all around.
