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.
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!
