Becca Worby’s reading series in Crown Heights was fantastic. The little bookstore was homey and smelled like wood and felt like a sauna but in a good way. I got to be reunited with Kassi Underwood, and see my friend Molly Oswaks. We ate some delicious sushi in the back of a cab and then had a bunch of wine and deep conversation. P.S. Molly and I are in the early stages of planning a launch party for WOMEN in Brooklyn, details TBA.

The Q and A got pretty serious. Becca grilled us about our nonfiction habit.
Leslie Jamison and I. As I double fist my phone and an IPA.

Oh, and I published an essay on Human Parts the other day, called Behind The Till.
