I will be reading at this event this Saturday, which is lovely as I have an especial fondness for laundromats and all their horrors. Those whirling things can eat you!


Yes! It's time for another Dirty Laundry: Loads of Prose, this time we will be in fabulous Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Saturday February 3rd at 7:30pm..

Come out and cozy up to a dryer, elevate your spirits by hugging a machine in spin cycle mode all while hearing great writers and the music of a true guitar master.

Writers Carolyn Turgeon, author of the novel Rain Village and Marie Carter, author of Trapeze Diaries will read, and Steve "Smitty" will work the room on his National bottle neck steel guitar.

Here are the details:
Date: Saturday February 3, 2007
Time: 7:30-8:30pm
Where: Giant Launder Center
Address: 173 North 3rd Street, between Bedford and Driggs in
Directions: L train to first stop in Bedford stop (1st stop in
Brooklyn), walk south on Bedford to North 3rd, left on North 3rd.

Bring your laundry and I'll supply quarters and detergent, we're using METHOD brand. It's great detergent, and I have eight cases of the stuff. With a suggested donation of $5 (it sells for nine dollars retail) you can have your very own bottle (Les wants me to get the cases out of the living room, so I need your help here).
