Rookie mag! And more “Madonna & Me” readings (NYC and Baltimore, I am staring at you).

Hello there, beloved fans! Just kidding — I don’t know if anyone actually reads this, but I wanted to update you, my invisible friends, with a few important items of note.

  • The following night at 7 pm, I’ll be reading from Madonna & Me with Susan Shapiro, Emily Nussbaum, Dana Rossi, and Colleen Kane at one of my very favorite bookstores: St. Marks Bookshop! The event starts at 7 pm. I have many fond memories of browsing their impeccably stocked shelves when I lived in New York, especially when I lived right around the corner on 9th St. and 2nd Avenue, circa 2003/2004; their magazine racks were my personal vision of heaven. I’m thrilled to read there — it’s been a neighborhood staple since 1977 and so many esteemed writers have read and/or frequented the place.
  • And last but not least, on Friday, May 25 I’ll be reading with contribs Kelly Keenan Trumpbour and Maria Raha at Baltimore’s Atomic Books. We will be “sharing” the event with author Michael Fournier, who will be reading from his new novel Hidden Wheel. Very excited! I haven’t visited Atomic before, but growing up in DC, I’ve been hearing great things about it for years.
  • In other news, as a recently jobless person, I’m looking for new writing & editing projects to take on! Yes! This means if you have leads, you should please email me (laura at laurabarcella dot com).
  • And please “like” Madonna & Me on Facebook here, and buy it-then-write-an-Amazon-review here, and follow it on Twitter here, and follow yours truly on Twitter here.¬†Thanks, and bye for now…
