SF/NY Events in April

San Francisco and New York! Come hear me and a host of wildly talented people at one of three events to celebrate the release of the book on 4/10: 

Dictionary Stories Release Party
Tuesday April 10th, 7:30–9pm
The Booksmith, 1644 Haight St, San Francisco

This night will be incredibly special, and it'll have almost nothing to do with me. Not only do we get to spend time in one of the best indie bookstores in the city, Robin Sloan (olive oil magnate and author of Sourdough and Mr Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore) will be running the show, and I'll be accompanied for the reading by Minna Choi and the Magik*Magik Orchestra, which will be a literal dream.
