2. My Salon of Shame debut is next Tues., Dec. 2, 8pm. (Yay!) I’ll be reading from my super-secret 1978 summer camp diary, sharing insights into important things to pack (Body On Tap), notes on puberty (I had a few things in common with my bunkmate, Hillary), and tales of beating boys at arm-wrestling (“the little weaklings!”), all accompanied by drawings via their spankin’ new digital projector. As always, tickets are already sold out, but wait in the stand-by line and you’ll probably make it in.
3. Extra-curricular teaching activities: I’ve done a few comics workshops for teens recently, three for the Seattle Art Museum and one for the Seattle Girls School. I’ll also be teaching workshops for fifth-graders at Lakeside School next week, as I’ve done for the past four years. (Other teaching news: I just applied for and received funding from Cornish to attend the AWP Conference in February. I’m going to escape the dreary Seattle winter for a long weekend in… Chicago??)
