Ellen Event Alert! Next Friday!

Last January, esteemed literary organization Hugo House paid me the honor of inviting me to be a Writer in Residence for their “new works” series at the end of the year. Meaning, now: I’ll be reading next Friday.

Exciting and scary for me – my piece is more personal than any of the the autobiographical work I’ve done so far. (It’s also my first dip into material I intend to develop into a full-length book.)

Cartoonist Ellen Forney, “This American Life” regular Jack Hitt, and poet/soldier Brian Turner present new work on the theme “We Could Be Heroes,” alongside new music by Canary Sing.

Richard Hugo House
1634 Eleventh Avenue (one block north of Pine, in Capitol Hill)
Tickets are on sale now at www.brownpapertickets.com.

I’m also going to teach a three-hour workshop the following afternoon, a studio class on writing your own autobiographical comic. Drawing experience helpful but definitely not necessary!
