It was a real honor to get to read with Ben Tanzer this past Sunday at Freebird Books, my de facto home base here in Brooklyn. The reading was an east coast celebration in honor of the release of Ben’s new book, Most Likely You Go Your Way and I’ll Go Mine (the original release party was held in Chicago).
A good group of friends made it down to hear Ben read from the new book and myself kick a brand new story, “Job in Williamsburg,” as well as an excerpt from “Taking the Happy Bus on Home,” the last story in The Love Book. People responded quite nicely to Ben’s reading, digging on the fantastic sense of humor from the book.
As always, Peter from Freebird Books took great care of us and I can never walk out of the joint without discovering some great new find. In this instance, it was the Mavis Gallant short story collection released by Bloomsbury Classics (imported from the UK). If you’re in Brooklyn, do stop by Freebird and support the cause.
But here are a few shots for your ocular amusement.
