This weekend I’ll be bussing down to Bethesda, Maryland to be part of the Small Press Expo on Saturday. I’ll be selling portraits, signing books at the Uncivilized Books table (H1-2) and at 4:30 PM will be in a panel moderated by Whit Taylor called World Building From Reality, with Ethan Rilly, Noah Van Sciver and Chris Kim.

Then on I’ll hop on a train back to Brooklyn for Sunday’s Brooklyn Book Festival, also at the Uncivilized Books table. At noon Ariel Gore will moderate a panel with me, Thi Bui and Julia Alekseyeva, called Mothers and Other Monsters.

With all the busing to and fro I’ll miss all of the festival parties, so I’ll be making a party of my table confinement. In the afternoons I’ll introduce a new, experimental artform which I call “drunk portraiture.”

Also, in case you haven’t seen it on social media, I’ve been doing a weekly murder serial comic for the Paris Review called Little Red and Big Bad.
