If you’re interested, I will be doing a 30 minute book signing on 3/8 at 12:30 pm at the Cincinnati Review table F19.
Then, on Saturday, 3/9 I will be doing a reading/signing at the offsite event, Functionally Literate, at 3PM, with a host of great readers including Erica Dawson, James Fleming, Juliana Gray, Nathan Holic, and Jeff Parker. Hosted by Jared Silvia and presented by Burrow Press. It’s at Dillon’s, 955 Boylston Street, right by the convention center.
About Letters to James FrancoMy name is Don Peteroy. I'm a PhD. candidate at University of Cincinnati. My major has a long name, so try to say it in one breath: "English and Comparative Literature with a Creative Dissertation." I spent the majority of my adult years as a social worker. I decided it's pointless to help people, so I've devoted the rest of my life to reading and writing. Here's all my publications and works in progress: My novella, "Wally," published by Burrow Press, in the fall of 2012. Novella: "A World Without Owls" Unpublished.
