So I promise to start writing more frequently again, about the variety of topics that intrigue me–chiefly books– but, at the moment, this column is to let you know that I’ll soon be on the boards again, giving one of my twice-yearly readings. December 10, as a matter of fact, and you are all cordially invited.
What will you get when you come to the Cornelia Street Cafe on that evening and slap down your $8 admission fee ? First of all, a glass of wine or other beverage of your choice but, more importantly, me! I’ll be reading from my own fiction, as I’ve done for the last seven years, but this particular evening will feature the novel you’ve been getting snippets of every now and then and will soon (yes! early next year) be published so that you can read the whole thing. Really! Problems of Translation is finally being published, in both paperback and kindle editions. I’ll keep you posted as to the progress–and the Book Party!–but on Wednesday, December 10, at 6 pm, please come and hear yet another excerpt, plus whatever new stuff I have time to read.
Problems of Translation, as some of you know, is a comic adventure, or as my newly created subtitle has it, Charlie’s Comic, Terrifying, Romantic, Loopy, Round-the-World Journey in Search of Linguistic Happiness.
And that ain’t all! In addition to me and your glass of wine, you’ll get another award-winning author and reader of fiction, Eva Lesko Natiello, who will be reading from and signing copies of her recently published novel, The Memory Box. Her debut novel has already attracted its own fan club on Amazon, but I’m assured that Eva will have paperback copies to purchase, if that’s your preference. The Memory Box is a psychological suspense thriller: You won’t guess where it’s going and, later, you won’t believe where you’ve been!
As an additional bonus, you might even get to hear the great Ringmaster, Angelo Verga, introduce us!
So that’s what you get for your $8, kiddos, and I think it’s plenty. Please come and enjoy yourself! Dissipate that December gloom! It’s a great way to kick off the holiday season!
If you want to know more about both Eva and myself, here’s a link to the Events Page of the Cornelia Street Cafe that explains it all: http://www.corneliastreetcafe.com/downstairs/Performances.asp?sdate=12/10/2014&from_cal=0.Share this post:
