Elizabeth Graver!

On July 5th, I get to read with Elizabeth Graver, author of, most recently, THE END OF THE POINT.

Little known fact:  when I was in college, Elizabeth’s parents were my English professors.  I also worked for them–grocery shopping, cooking, etc.  I have fond and clear memories of standing in their kitchen doorway, chatting with Elizabeth, home from Wesleyan, about writing, parents, books.  I still remember one story she told about the epiphanic moment when she was a child when her parents were calling for her, and she realized she didn’t have to answer.

Come find out more strange facts about the two of us at our event next week.
