1) This Thursday from 6-9 I'm hosting a book signing for Renee Rigdon, who those of you with knitting needles know as 1/2 of the Anticraft (http://www.theanticraft.com/). Renee will be signing copies of her book, "The Anticraft: Knitting, Beading, and Stitching for the Slightly Sinister" which is funny, useful, and beautiful.

From their Antifesto:
Creation from chaos is natural. We've come to a place where we've realized that we have this actual, physical need to create things. We've discovered that we hate people en masse, we're sick of homogenized culture, and these realizations have left holes in our hearts. We create to fill those holes, to be able to sleep at night knowing we've done something, even a small something, to confront the manufactured culture that is currently being churned out.
She's wonderful, creative and funny and you should come meet her. Renee hales from way down south in Kentucky and if you're nice, you might get to hear her say "y'all".
Please let me know if you're interested in attending so the publisher knows how many books to send along.
Hope to see y'all there.
let me know if you'd like to come and I'll send you details.
2) This Friday, Trillian stars in Homer's epic The Odyssey. Come see this classic of Greek storytelling at the Curio Theater at 8:00 pm. There is a party at Abbraccio after the show where you can meet Trillian and the rest of the cast and get her autograph.
