Coming Attractions

pct-guideA few readings over the next few weeks…

First up is this Saturday’s ADZPCTKO. For those not in the know, that is the Annual Day Zero Pacific Crest Trail Kick-Off event. My wife Kaci and I each had pieces accepted for the Pacific Crest Trailside Reader. Three of Kaci’s poems are in the Oregon / Washington edition, while my story “Sometimes They Come Back,” which I’ll be reading, is in the California edition.

It takes place Saturday, April 27 at Lake Morena County Park in Campo, east of San Diego. I’m scheduled to read at 7:45pm, but if you get there early, there is a presentation on “Bears, Lions, Rattlesnakes, Ticks and Fire” at 6:30pm. Full details on the event, including the full weekend schedule, is here.  By the way, all royalties from both volumes of the Trailside Reader benefit the Pacific Crest Trail Association, so pick up one or both and help out a great organization.

Then on Thursday, May 9, from 7-9pm, I’ll be doing a thesis reading with 3 colleagues at San Diego State University’s Scripps Cottage. But I’ll give an update with more information on that soon. Stay tuned…
