Me in Baltimore This Weekend!

Readers: if you live near or around the Baltimore area, come hear me read from my book and watch me attempt a cooking demonstration (scary!) this weekend at The Baltimore Book Festival. I’m slated for 4 o’clock on Saturday at the Food For Thought Stage. Come say hi, taste some of the food I’m cooking, and let me sign your books. I’ll even answer questions. It’ll be fun and potentially hilarious–can I be sued if I burn their kitchen down? See you there!

Hey Floridians

I’m doing a reading at the Boca Raton Barnes & Noble (click for info) this Sunday, the 18th, at 2 PM. Come on out and meet my entire family as they kvell and cheer and say, “He may not be our son the lawyer, but he’s our son the author and that’s good enough for us.”

Reading at The Strand

A heads up for those who missed my Brooklyn reading (which ended up being a really fun event); I’ll be reading this upcoming Wednesday at The Strand along with Susan Shapiro (reading from her new book “Only As Good As Your Word: Writing Lessons From My Favorite Literary Gurus”) and Christine Kenneally (reading from her book “The First Word: The Search for the Originals of Language”–she’s going to be on The Daily Show soon, so you can catch her here live). The event info is here but I can sum it up as follows: October 10th from 7 to 8:30 PM. Hope to see you there!

LIVE Book Reading this Monday in Park Slope

Mark it on your calendar: I’m reading from my book this Monday at the Park Slope Barnes & Noble at 7:30 PM. You’ll get to hear the words straight from the horse’s mouth, plus you’ll get to meet my friends, ask me questions, and have me sign your book. It’ll be tons of fun: I really hope to see all of you there!

Book News / Life Updates

– This Monday (September 24th) I’ll be reading from my book at the Park Slope Barnes and Noble at 7:30 PM. I’d love to see all of you there! This is your chance to show your support for the book in public, plus I’d love to sign your copy. And you’ll get to meet Craig and all the other characters from my life you’re always hearing so much about.

– Guess where this reading is listed? I nearly died when I saw it: The New Yorker! Ok, I’ve been reading The New Yorker for the past decade quite obsessively. As I’ve described before, I used to sit in the Dunkin’ Donuts near my apartment in Atlanta and dream about going to the restaurants listed in “Tables for Two” and read about the readings that all my favorite authors were doing. And now I’m one of those authors. It’s surreal. [In the print issue, it’s on pg. 78.]

– Check out my Serious Eats interview with David Kamp: Part One & Part Two. Our conversation was really vibrant and interesting–I hope you’ll think so too.

David Lebovitz kidnapped my mom! Seriously, today’s stop on the Virtual Book Tour doesn’t involve me at all, just my mom and all her celebrity friends. Thanks David for letting her visit.
