Alkali Sink has been living in the world for at least three months now, and I've read in Oakland, Berkeley, Corte Madera, Sacramento, Carson City, Truckee, Merced, Modesto, and some fine cities tucked up and down Highway 99. Highlights include my name in lights in Carson City and a reading in Berkeley attended by a beloved erstwhile boyfriend (yo, Paul!); three guys I met via OK Cupid and who awkwardly bumped into me (and each other) there; my aunt Pam and nephew Angel; my awesome tattooed & pierced brother Marshall in nurses's scrubs; and my 13-year-old daughter, who may or may not have been slightly distressed by the audience sourcing for this particular reading.
Next up: August 1 in Los Angeles, at La Luz de Jesus gallery, where I'll be reading with Helen Wickes and Lisa Robertson as part of a birthday celebration for Michael Sheppard, Don Bolles, and Shari Bricker. Details: August 1, La Luz de Jesus. Event starts at 6 pm with a set of vintage country music by Bob Ricketts of the Groovy Rednecks; readings start at 8 sharp. The night concludes with a set by Don Bolles doing whatever the hell it is he does so well, as many can attest.
Also: based on some friendly goading by person dear to me, I'm going to update this here website more frequently than once every quarter.
