Okay, kinda last-minute, but... tonight I'll be participating in a literary event at the Colfax Avenue location of Tattered Cover in Denver. It's a pre-party for next week's World Book Night festivities. Along with my fellow Denver writers Brenna Yovanoff and Kona Morris, I'll be reading from and discussing a book that has inspired me. My pick: Christopher Priest's 1974 mind-blowing science-fiction masterpiece The Inverted World. The whole thing kicks off at 5 p.m. I think some live music is planned. I may also dance or barf or something.
