This Sunday, August 18, 2013, I will be joining The Morley Walk, a fantastic walking bookstore tour through Brooklyn. We'll be touring five local indie bookstores while reading Christopher Morley's The Haunted Bookshop (1919). Melville House, the organizer of the event, is celebrating the reprinting of this great book.

Described as part "marathon reading" and "walking tour," I'm excited to hoof it around my favorite borough with other like-minded lit nerds. Come and say hello, I'll be at the after-party at the Der Schwarze Koelner biergarten afterwards!
