You're Invited: Writers On Autism Event, NYC 6/7 at 7!
Well, the date and time sound lucky, don't they? 77! Sorry this invitation is so informal, but I didn't have your address.
I'll be doing a reading at the first annual Writers On Autism event at the LifeSpire offices in the Empire State Building. Details below. Yes, I still don't know how to do the linky things. I'm trying though. My reading is humorous - I promise. Details here:
Tomorrow I'm at BEA (Book Expo America) breathing in the air of publishers and authors, meeting the fabulously funny American Title III winner Jenny Gardiner, author of "Sleeping With Ward Cleaver" due out from Dorchester, www.jennygardiner.net, hoping to bump into my wonderful agent Eric Myers and meeting with John Robison and some of his folks from Crown.
What? You don't know who John is? Well come on out from under that rock! www.johnrobison.com. He's the Aspergian author of "Look Me In The Eye" which debuts in September. If you know someone with ANY form of autism, from high to low, from Rainman to Aspergers, you'll want to read his memoir.
John is also reading at the Writers on Autism event. Barbara Fischkin, writer extraordinaire and autism Mom herself put the event together. Barbara's site is www.barbarafischkin.com.
See the press release link above for the other talented writers participating in the event. If you're near the city, please come! If you spot me at BEA say hello!
Special thanks to my Mom for coming today to help Mark with the kids tomorrow so I can sneak into the City. Joy!!!
