A bit more self promotion here, so please bear with me. I will be reading from Closer to the Ground and (for those of you thinking “been there done that”) some new material–potentially even an excerpt from the novel I’m working on–this coming Tuesday, November 7th, 7:00pm, at the Patagonia Ballard Work Wear store. If you aren’t from around here, that’s in Seattle, north of the Ship Canal. If nothing else, it’s a great excuse to check out the new hard-working Patagonia gear, enjoy all the awesome food and drink options in Ballard, and listen to some words. Thanks, everyone. Hope you are all well.
