We will be interviewing each other about our respective books (How To Be Loved and Borderless) and the art of writing fiction and memoir. Eva’s flying out all the way from NYC and this will be the only Bay Area event I do this year, so we are going to go deep, dig into craft, and ensure you seriously don’t want to miss it.
The estimable Novel Brewing Company is hosting and will have a bunch of special beers on tap. Oh, and we’ll be supplying mouthwatering Cheeseboard pizza to those who show up on time.
When: 7PM on February 7th
Where: Novel Brewing Company, 6510 San Pablo Ave., Oakland
Bring: Friends, appetite, curiosity
Do: RSVP ASAP so we know how much pizza to order
For the uninitiated, Borderless is a lush, philosophical, near-future novel extrapolating the rise of tech platforms and the decline of the nation state and How To Be Loved is a raw, moving memoir about illness, friendship, and figuring out what love really means. Eva is an incredibly talented writer and I would follow her voice to the ends of the Earth. Seriously, read it (and you’ll probably weep). Both books have earned critical acclaim and we can’t wait to delve into the creative process behind them.
Come eat, drink, ask us hard questions, and blow your literary minds!
Complement with the East Bay Express on Borderless, three pieces of advice for building a writing career, and my Google Talk about Cumulus.
