Moving, shaking

Last night I had the pleasure of attending a book release party for Ben Tanzer's new novel, You Can Make Him Like You. The event was at Beauty Bar, a really funky place (think 1950s beauty parlor, including on-site fingernail jobs) in Ukrainian Village. Though I had to leave early to catch my train (thus missing Ben's performance as well as the later readers) I did see great readings from Jason Fisk and Gina Frangello, and finally got the chance to meet many writers I had only heard of or corresponded with online, particularly Fisk and David Masciotra. An enjoyable if abbreviated evening, indeed.

And quite good to see you sir, glad you could make it out, abbreviated and all.
