these days

I invite you to Thursday evening at NYU's Queer Festival 5-11. I read after 8:30 pm, (for 10 minutes) from Two Augusts in a Row in a Row. NYU's Kimmel Center, Room 914, 60 Washington Square South. The drag king, singer, student of magic protagonist in Two Augusts in a Row in a Row works as a transcriber and translator of a silent film actress. This is set in Brooklyn, 2001.

Next week, I head north for a workshop with Lydia Davis... and to finish writing Two Augusts in a Row in a Row.
