Warning: Literature Aplenty

Just wanted to let the world know that the Minneapolis – St. Paul (Twin Cities or TC) literary scene is about to blow your mind.

This is a public service announcement courtesy of the many TC-based literary organzations/events/artists who have or are about to leap upon the scene. This evening I had my choice of at minimum six literary events to attend. There were probably many more. Sorry to have missed the Saint Paul Almanac publication party, but I was attending two other events.

I did, at one of the events, talk to one of the contributors who told me about his fascinating piece in the Almanac. I plan on attending one of the readings because another friend is published in the new Almanac too. I also spoke with Minnesota writer William Souder, whose latest book will be reviewed in this week’s New York Time’s book review.

I don’t have time to tell you more at this point, because I need to focus on a new project for yet another fabulous local endeavor, recently relaunched to keep on top of everything that’s going on.

Are you keeping up? Not sure it’s possible, but maybe Mill City Bibliophile will keep me up to date about what I’ve missed.

Then, of course, I’m involved in launching my new novel. Crap, with all of the above mentioned literary activity, I almost wish I didn’t have a new book coming out, so I could stay on top of everything else that’s going on.

It’s an embarrassment of literary riches, which is a very good problem to have.
