Effing Press Reading Tomorrow Night, 6pm : Farrah Field, Ada Limon & Justin Marks & Music by Katie May
So this reading was organized by Julia Cohen, who is the guest editor of the latest issue of Effing Magazine. Also, I'll be assisting her in the packing up of a Uhaul Wednesday morning & I'll be driving her to Denver, where I will be living with her.
You should come to this because it'll be a great reading & you should come to this to say farewell to Julia in NY. She's really cool.
