So Cool that #Dylan Gets Medal of Freedom!

Presidential Medal of Freedom Ceremony
I know he didn’t cure a disease, save us from war, or write the great American novel, but Bob Dylan receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom made my day. He has truly influenced a generation with his music and is one of my personal heroes.

“Like the Video . . . I Wrote the Book”

Great take on book promotion in social media in Times today.

Reading from Replacement Child – A #Memoir

A short reading from Replacement Child – A Memoir, to be released in the spring of 2013 by Seal Press. I read a chapter at Stony Brook Manhattan this past Monday evening. It was a fantastic evening, with several of my MFA colleagues reading wonderful pieces. @sealpressĀ  (FB friends, just skip this–you’ve already seen it!)
