Upcoming reading events

If you live in or near the Twin Cities, there are four chances for you to hear me read from My Year Zero in the near future. (If you live far away, I will be posting a video reading!)

Important note: there are two official launch events for My Year Zero – an open house and an after party. You are welcome at both! See below for details.

The Loft Literary Center Winter 2016 Teaching Artist Reading

Wednesday, March 16 at 7 pm

1011 Washington Avenue South, Minneapolis

Listen to me and other very cool Loft instructors read short selections from our work. More info here: https://www.facebook.com/events/188383148204460/

The Quatrefoil Library’s annual Women’s Author Event

Saturday, March 26, 1 – 4 pm

Elmer L. Andersen Library, 222 21st Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55455

I’ll be reading close to 1 pm, so come early if you want to hear me and then stay for a great roster of local women authors. More info at:



My Year Zero Open House at Addendum Books

Saturday, March 26, 2-5 pm (reading at 2:30 and 4 pm)

478 S Cleveland Ave, Saint Paul

Addendum is bookstore dedicated to young adult and children’s books. Because it’s small, we’re encouraging people to come through when it’s convenient for them and I’m reading twice at 2:30 and 4 p.m.

My Year Zero After Party

Saturday, March 26, 5 pm until we get tired (reading at 6 pm)

1999 Sargent Ave, Saint Paul

This is ¾ mile from Addendum. It’s in a house that can be a little hard to find, so below are some photos to help you out. (If you came to the Just Girls launch party, this is the same place.)

The party is listed on Facebook and if you think you might make it, please RSVP so we know how much food to get. (And how many drinks – yes, I’m looking at you, YA authors who drink like sailors.) https://www.facebook.com/events/1050727904991536/
