This coming Sunday, Dec. 19th from 1-4 pm I’ll be taking part in a marathon reading of Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol at Used Housing Works Bookstore. Used Housing Works is a great organization that benefits the homeless and people living with AIDs, and they could use your support. So if you’re in New York and want to hear a great story, stop by and you’ll get the chance to see some amazing writers read different sections–Scott Adsit, Mike Albo, Jonathan Ames, Kurt Andersen, Thomas Beller, Max Blagg, Alexander Chee, Farai Chideya, Joshua Cohen, Lisa Dierbeck, Karen Essex, Mary Gaitskill, David Gates, Zachary German, Kathryn Harrison, Jill Hennessy, Heidi Julavits, Julie Klam, Ted Lee, Sam Lipsyte, Colum McCann, Patrick McGrath, Honor Moore, Francine Prose, Laurie Sandell, Said Sayrafiezadeh, Amanda Stern, Justin Taylor and Teddy Wayne.
