New Appearances

I’ve added some new events to the Author Appearances department of this website. Most immediately, I’ll be out in Los Angeles on Monday, reading and signing books at Book Soup, and I’ll be in the Boston area on Thursday, at Brookline Booksmith. I hope you can make it out.

Also, I’ve been invited to a very cool event, sponsored by The Jewish Week, at Congregation Rodeph Sholom, on the Upper West Side. I’ll be in conversation with Joy Ladin, the author of Through the Door of Life: A Jewish Journey Between Genders. I’ve just received Joy’s book and it looks fabulous. I’m really looking forward to talking to her. The event is on Wednesday, July 25, at 7pm. Information here.
