Tonight: Tattered Cover event

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.

More Taft 2012 Press

And since I'm on the subject of Taft 2012 coverage, here are a few cool things that have popped recently:

A review by Wes Vernon for The Washington Times.

An interview by Scott Butki for Blogcritics.

An audio review by Kristin Dreyer Kramer for PRX's Shelf Discovery.

A lengthy and insightful audio interview with the great Dave Ashton at Denver's own KGNU Community Radio.

Thanks, everyone! The kind attention and honest opinions, positive or otherwise, are all sincerely appreciated.

Interview for Rivera Runs Through It

The book blogger Nicole Rivera graciously interviewed me for her fantastic blog, Rivera Runs Through It. Unlike most of my recent interviews, it focuses more on the books that have influenced me since I was a kid. Some of them may surprise you... Others, well, you probably saw them coming! Many thanks to Ms. Rivera for reading Taft 2012 and letting me ramble on and on...
