Love Songs of the Revolution gets its official launch on Saturday, June 28 at Skylight Books in Los Feliz. It's a bit of a dream come true to see my face on their website.
Skylight is absolutely one of the best places in LA to find your next book. You can wander the aisles and see what the universe offers, or ask one of their smart staff people to give you suggestions. I'd say every literary person in LA has a soft spot in their heart for the store. A guy named Graham S. loves Skylight so much he wrote a haiku review on Yelp.
Skylight's calendar is filled with night after night of readings and talks by authors from Patti Smith to a local girl whose first book was published by an indie press you might never have heard of before. If you miss a reading, don't fret. Just click over and listen to the podcast on iTunes or Podbean.
In the Department of You Probably Didn't Know: actor Jeffrey Tambor (aka George Bluth Sr. on Arrested Development) is a part owner of the store. If that doesn't raise the cool factor, I don't know what does.
My book launch and reading start at 5 p.m. on June 28. There will be wine and snacks. Possibly live music too. Please join me to celebrate my book and this amazing bookstore.
I'll let Skylight's official bookstore cat, Franny, have the last word:
Lately I've been making zines. For a limited time, you can see my first zine on exhibit at the Irvine Fine Arts Center. Read more.
