Brooklyn: Books Are Magic - w/Molly Ringwald

I'll be joined by actress/writer/singer Molly Ringwald for a special night of books and conversation.

I'll read a brief excerpt from my new story collection, How to Get Into Our House and Where We Keep the Money, and Molly will read from her acclaimed collection, When It Happens to You, (or possibly a new work-in-progress, shhh...), followed by a talk and audience Q&A.

LA: Skylight Books

I'm thrilled to come to Skylight Books and read from my debut story collection, How to Get Into Our House and Where We Keep the Money. The last time I read at Skylight Books I was living in LA, and had just published my first book, the novella A Familiar Beast. It feels great to come home. 

As a bonus treat: the event will be hosted (once again) by the amazing Cecil Castellucci, authoress and artiste. Her most recent writing project is Shade, The Changing Girl, an ongoing comic on Gerard Way’s Young Animal imprint at DC Comics.
