Dear Friends: I'll be reading at Moe's Books next Wednesday, January 19th (7:30pm) with Bill Berkson and Kit Robinson as part of a Cuneiform Press showcase. This will actually act as something of a Bay Area book launch for Haecceities (which will be available in a second edition the day of the event!).
Here's the Moe's announcement:
All events, unless noted, start at 7:30pm
