Moby-Dick Read-a-Thon

To celebrate the 200th anniversary of Herman Melville’s birth, the Newberry Library will host a Moby-Dick Read-a-Thon lasting 25 continuous hours. By the end of the marathon reading, a series of readers-performers will have collectively read Moby-Dick (aloud) cover to cover! I've been asked to read Chapter 14, “Nantucket,” which should take about five minutes.

Lumpen Radio: Eye 94 Radio (FM 105.5)

Jeremy Kitchen, Mike Sack, and Jamie Trecker asked me on their Eye 94 broadcast from the Fine Arts Building. It will be taped in front of a live audience, so come out and listen. Jeremy, Mike, and Jamie host an interesting and impressive lineup of authors and other artists on their twice-a-week show, and I'm honored to be included. I think we'll talk about my story collection as well as the Chicago Literary Hall of Fame.
