The New Short Fiction Series in L.A. on 9/8

I'd like to invite you to a live performance of my stories (by actors!) on Sunday, September 8th at 7pm at the Federal Bar in North Hollywood.

The New Short Fiction Series is L.A.’s longest running spoken word series now in its 17th year. Sally Shore directs the series and pairs an actor (from current shows like Mad Men, Dexter, Glee, and your favorite Soaps) with a story and they do a dramatic interpretation/reading of it. They're presenting four of my stories.

Writers who have participated in The New Short Fiction Series in the past include Aimee Bender, Ray Bradbury, Dana Johnson, Tatjana Soli, John Fante, and Tod Goldberg, among others, and I'm honored to be among them.

The Federal Bar, located at 5303 Lankershim Boulevard in North Hollywood (at Chandler), is a great venue and the events are lively and fun. Tickets are $10 in advance (via this link) or $15 at the door. Please let me know if you think you can make it, because I'd love to see you there!

Update: Sally was a guest on L.A.'s 90.7 FM Arts in Review program at 7:00pm on 8/30. She talked about the upcoming New Short Fiction Series season and even spent a few minutes kindly talking about my fiction and promoting the show on September 8th (beginning around the 7:50 mark), which you can listen to here.
