The first show of Story/Stereo's 2011 season is tonight. It features this terrific band, The Caribbean, along with Emerging Writer Fellows James Hannaham (God Says No) and Matthew Pitt (Attention Please Now). For more information on this free event, visit Writer.org. Those of you who wish to tweet or follow the tweets live, the hashtag is #storystereo.
On Sunday, March 6, TWC hosts another Open Door reading, at 2p.m. Also free. This one features Kim Kupperman reads from her recent collection of essays, I Just Lately Started Buying Wings. She is joined by poet J.H. Beall, who reads from Republic. Click here to find more information.
In other news of note, The Writer's Center's second podcast is now up. In this episode, the "voice of books" on National Public Radio, Alan Cheuse, discusses his new novel, Song of Slaves in the Desert, with interviewer Tracey Donnelly. You can listen to it at podbean right here.
Last but not least, there's yet another cool social media site, this one especially geared toward writers. A few years ago, the Brooklyn Review accepted one of my translations of Danish author Simon Fruelund. That editor, Scott Lindenbaum, has gone on, together with another editor for that journal, Andy Hunter, to found both Electric Literature and this incredible new site: Broadcastr. Where you can record and share your stories right at your desk. Check it out.
And have a great weekend!
