Reading Today

posted by on August 30 at 10:00 AM


There are a bunch of readings today.

B.L. Morgan signs the mysteries Blood And Rain and Blood For The Masses at Borders Tacoma. The press release said he would be signing for 6 hours, from 12 to 6. HARD CORE! And Cricket McRae, whose first name is Cricket, will be signing her mystery, which is related to canning and preserving, at the Seattle Mystery Book Shop.

And at Bumbershoot, there are readings galore. The editor of the book Cringe, which is like the Salon of Shame but is based on a reading series in New York City, will be hosting a reading of awful teenage poetry. There is also something called CoochieMagik, which is exactly what it sounds like.

And there are tons of conflicts of interest there, too. David Schmader will be appearing with Kevin Sessums to talk about growing up gay in the south. New Stranger Genius Sherman Alexie will be hosting a big ol’ thing with Trisha Ready’s country band. In addition to country songs about books, Alexie will read and also Sean Nelson and Christopher Frizzelle and Ellen Forney will talk about…well, you’ll have to see it to believe it. At almost the exact same time, some douchebag with the obviously fake last name of “Constant” will be interviewing brilliant young novelists Jonathan Evison and Sarah Suh-lien Bynum.

Bumbershoot is here.

Full readings calendar, including the next week or so, is here.

Just to clarify, I'm pretty sure Sarah Brown (editor of the book "Cringe") is in NY this weekend. But Sara Bynoe (editor of the book "Teen Angst Poetry") is in town from Vancouver, BC. So I'd assume the Bumbershoot reading isn't from Cringe, but from Teen Angst Poetry.

Also, for what it's worth, Cringe inspired the Salon of Shame, but Teen Angst Poetry's been around longer than either event!

Ok. First off the show was called Fuck Off and Die- Tales in Teen Angst Poetry.

Sara Bynoe is from Vancouver- she started in 2000 edited Teen Angst: A Celebration of REALLY BAD Poetry circa 2005.

Seriously Stranger get it together and do some proper research!

She's my BFF and the show kicked ass!
