I’m off to various things, including the Arkansas Times (it’s more accurate to say David Koon’s) Pub or Perish event in the Arkansas Literary Festival.

It’s at 6:30 p.m. at Sticky Fingerz and runs until 9 p.m. Readers include Dorothy Allison (“Bastard out of Carolina”); novelist Cristina Henriquez (“The World in Half”) and poets including Paul Lake, Maureen McGovern and Scott Standridge
