Change in Plans… My apologies for any inconvenience, but I am unable to attend this reading at the Columbia University Bookstore on April 11, 2014. I will most likely attend and read at another upcoming Widows’ Handbook NY reading. Watch this page, also, for Blond Boy readings in the Twin Cities and elsewhere in the coming months.
