Related music rec, because every time I type "Michigan," I find myself singing it: Sufjan Stevens' "Greetings from Michigan" is a great CD.
So yeah, off to Michigan--I know, who goes there the last week of Jan?--which is exciting for so many reasons. Most of all, that Detroit-area RED authors Lisa Chau (so entertaining and not afraid to ad-lib or talk about poo, as those of you who saw her read at the NY launch party know; give this girl a stand-up show!), and Hannah and Sarah Morris (of many, many fans; and making their reading debut!)
Plus, the Friday night reading is in my very hometown. So this is me, about to face my own teenage demons. Don't know how you girls do it...
A big mitten-shaped-state wave to cheer us on?
