It’s going to be a fun month of book events! In addition to these events, I am excited to attend two June book clubs to chat about Forks, Knives, and Spoons with readers.

Two of these event will be with some of my fellow 17Scribes – At the KGB Bar, I’ll be with Kate Brandes (The Promise of Pierson Orchard), Julie Pennell (The Young Wives Club), Renee Rutledge (The Hour of Daydreams), and Sandi Ward (An Astonishing Thing) and at Newtonville Books, I’ll be chatting with Lisa Duffy (The Salt House).

Hope to see you sometime in June at one of these book events, details below.

Join me with Julie Pennell, Renee Rutledge, Kate Brandes and Sandi Ward at the KGB Bar. “In the years since it opened in 1993, KGB has become something of a New York literary institution. … The crowd loves it. Admission is free, drinks are cheap and strong, and the level of excellence is such that KGB has been named best literary venue in New York City by New York Magazine, the Village Voice, and everyone else who bestows these awards of recognition.”
