March 21st Reading

If you missed the 510 Reading featuring Marion Winik, Rupert Wondolowski, Leni Zumas, and Deb Olin-Unferth, this past Saturday, maybe someone in this photo can tell you how it was:

Or maybe you should just watch this space, get on our email list, mark your calendars, and watch the phases of the moon so you do not miss the best scene (as ordained by The City Paper) next month.

The evening began with noted memoirist (and UB professor) Marion Winik reading excerpts from her latest collection, The Glen Rock Book of the Dead (Counterpoint, 2008):

Local treasure Rupert Wondolowski made his second appearance at the 510, promoting his new book, The origin of paranoia as a heated mole suit (Publishing Genius 2008):

Leni Zumas traveled down from Brooklyn to read the title story from her quirky and disquieting collection, Farewell Navigator (Open City, 2008):

Deb Olin-Unferth, author of Vacation and Minor Robberies (both McSweeneys) closed the reading with a cautionary tale about turtles ("Pets"):

REMEMBER: The April 18th reading will be at the Enoch Pratt Library in conjunction with the 2009 CityLit Festival. Thomas Glave, Christian Bauman, Chad Willenborg, and Michael Kimball will be our featured readers. See you then, promise?
