I'll be on the road for a bit. Below find a schedule.

My blog will be "guested" by Clare Dudman and my sister, Elizabeth VanderMeer, while I'm gone.

I won't be checking this messageboard for a few weeks. Please behave yourselves. ;)

March 27, Sunday—Reading—Elliott Bay Bookstore, Seattle—3:00pm (with L. Timmel Duchamp)

I’ll be reading and signing at one of my favorite bookstores (101 South Main Street, Seattle) with one of my favorite writers, Timmi Duchamp. I’m really thrilled about this. Also, anyone who buys a copy of Secret Life will receive a mini-mini secret life. Afterwards, anyone who is so inclined can join us for drinks. I also will be debuting the new VanderSampler at the reading:

April 1, Friday—Panel—Associated Writing Programs Conference—1:30pm (with Jessica Treat, Rosalind Stevenson, and others)

I will be reading a paper as part of a panel on “The Novella: Exploring the Boundaries of the Form” panel (Associated Writing Programs Conference, Hyatt Regency, 655 Burrard Street, Vancouver, BC, Canada).

April 2, Saturday—Reading—Unassociated Writers Conference—5:30pm

I will be doing a reading for the Unassociated Writers Conference (Western Front Society 303 East 8th Avenue, Vancouver, BC), right after Lance Olsen.

Additional information of possible interest

My new sampler will be available at the Omnivision table at the book fair component of the AWP conference, and possibly at the Fiction Collective 2 table.

On Thursday, March 31, I’ll be at the FC2/Soft Skull party from 6 to 7, then over to the Vancouver Public Library for Alison Stine’s reading. (It’s rather generous to myself to call Alison a “former student,” but I did first meet her while teaching creative writing via a correspondence course many years ago and since have stayed in touch. She’s an extremely gifted poet and working on a novel at the moment.)

On Saturday, April 2, I’ll be hanging around the AWP dance party at some point, since I’m told it’s a hoot.

And much else, informal and otherwise, will no doubt develop.

'Twas a fine reading at Elliott Bay, and good drinks and socializing afterwards. Nice size crowd for Easter Sunday afternoon, too -- those Seattle people like their literature. Glad I got a chance to be there. Hope you have as much fun on the rest of the trip.
