Like many of us, I’ve been hunkered down all winter. Now suddenly I’m doing 4 events this March. Here they are:

3/3 @ 7pm: Columbia Faculty Selects at KGB Bar!
This is a great reading series for emerging Columbia School of the Arts alumni. I’ll be pinch-hitting as host. Readers will be the mesmerizing Madeline Stevens, the kinetic Keegan Lester and the scintillating Suzanne Dottino. More info here.

3/10 @ 7pm: Buddha-Killers at the Morbid Anatomy Museum!
This is going to be a good one: a Killing the Buddha evening of death-affirming readings in support of Ann Neumann’s new book, The Good Death: An Exploration of Dying in America. You’ll also hear from Peter Manseau, Scott Korb and yours truly. (I plan to read from something that’s going to kill, har har.) Also there will be musicians singing murder ballads! And a lawyer to talk about advance directives! More info here.

3/24 @ 7pm: Books + Booze!
Join the delightful Clémence Boulouque in conversation with 3 eminent novelists on the topic of Jewish fatherhood (and how to survive it). There will be whiskey — and me giving a short introductory talk on booze and Jews. More info here.

3/30 @ 7.30pm: Guerilla Lit at Dixon Place!
This will be another good one. I’ll read from new work along with Gint Arras and Jacob Appel. More info here.

If all that’s not enough, check out the Hidden River Writers website, which published an entertaining interview with me about my e-book publishing company, Dutch Kills Press. And as usual feel free to buy one of my novellas.
