Some news. I’m going on tour this summer to promote and do readings from “Legs Get Led Astray”. I’m flying to Austin, reading there, and also reading in Houston, Oxford, New Orleans, Tuscaloosa, and Atlanta.
I’m going with four other female writers: Elizabeth Ellen, Mary Miller, Brandi Wells, and Donora Hillard.
Puh-lease support out Kickstarter campaign. We’ll be using the money for gas, (we’re renting a van) food, water and some airfare.
Please consider helping us out. Also–we have fun incentives, like packages from indie presses, texts and polaroids from the road, and soon we’ll be adding on writing workshops.
Also: I did the Other People Podcast with Brad Listi. Topics include: living with your parents, music stores, bilingualism, voice lessons, Gwen Stefani, Shakira, George Michael, Hudson, marijuana, singing, dancing, fear of dancing, bongo lessons, memoir, New York City, distractions, alcohol, The Strand, writing workshops, secrets, perspective, productivity, assimilation, hippie culture, selling jewelry, Seattle, alienation, passivity, raising children in big cities, Cheryl Strayed, cat-sitting, writing for cash, keeping it enjoyable, the depression of publication, stunt memoirs, mediating one’s experience, hiking, yoga, hangover recovery, Kripalu, moving to Portland, and the womb of goodness.

I spoke on the WGXC Afternoon Show last Monday. We talked about LGLA and the Hudson River Loft Reading Series. I read an essay from LGLA. LISTEN HERE.
The San Francisco Weekly gave LGLA a great review! “Caldwell’s prose hops easily from street graffiti to Big Life Sentimentality, sometimes at an alarming clip. Swollen, bittersweet lines like this crop up out of nowhere.” READ HERE.
