Reading at Left Bank Books With Allison Coffelt, 5/31

 

Allison Coffelt Eventt

Allison Coffelt, out of doors.

I’ll be reading at 7 p.m. on Thursday, 5/31 at Left Bank Books in St. Louis, as the opening act for the amazing Allison Coffelt! The event is free and open to the public.

Allison is promoting her debut essay collection, Maps Are Lines We Draw: A Road Trip Through Haiti, out now from Lanternfish Press.

From the publisher’s website: “Maps Are Lines We Draw explores the culture and natural beauty of the island as well as its discomfiting realities: the threat well-intentioned aid organizations can present to the local economy; the privilege that determines who gets to travel between a “here” and a distant “there” which is foreign and other; and the challenge of doing short-term good without creating long-lasting harm.”

Me, indoors.

As for me, I’m still repping Ashland Creek Press’s Among Animals 2: The Lives of Humans and Animals in Contemporary Short Fiction, though I’ll probably read something newer.

Hope to see you at Left Bank, St. Louis!
