A few days ago, Hagridden turned 1 year old. It’s walking around and eating solid food and everything. (More tomorrow on Hagridden at one year old!) To celebrate, I took the novel on the road, joining Hagridden‘s older, smaller half-sibling, Box Cutters, and my sunnyoutside pressmate Christopher Bowen on his Burning River Prose and Poetry Tour up the West Coast.
Chris started in LA with Chella Courington and Jane Rosenberg LaForge, then he and Jane drove up to San Francisco and I took the train down to meet them and fiction writer Linda Lenhoff for a reading at Alley Cat Books in the Mission District. The next day, Chris and I drove back up to Portland for a reading here, at the American Legion Post 134.
Below are a handful of photos from the readings I was at, in San Francisco and Portland, as well as as a few shots while on the rails/road. After the pics, look for links to books by all these authors!
I write fiction and teach college writing and literature. I'm the author of the story collection There Is No Other Way to Worship Them, the novel Hagridden, and the flash fiction chapbooks Box Cutters and Where There Is Ruin.
