Appearing nightly at the Freehold Raceway Mall...


Okay, maybe not nightly. Maybe just one night.

And that would be tomorrow night -- Thursday March 6th at Borders at 7:00pm.

When I think of New Jersey, I think of malls. In high school I worked at the Bambergers (before it was bought by Macy's) in a NJ mall. Not this mall -- the Monmouth one.

I love malls. They make me feel safe.

Weird, I know, especially since the chances of a crazed gunman coming into a mall and opening fire are a lot greater than having one come into my apartment, but whatever, it's true.

Anyway, if you live in NJ -- or even if you don't, and you just feel like hopping on a plane and coming to NJ for the evening -- please come see me there. I'll have just come from speaking at my high school and hopefully I won't be too depressed because I will have realized that it's been 22 years since I graduated and that's a bit of a buzzkill no matter how great my skin is looking since I switched moisturizers a few weeks back.

P.S. This is a picture of the mall. It's nice, no? So not only can you come see me read, but you can do buy yourself a new spring wardrobe.

I will so be there.

(And perhaps I will be looking at shoes after...)

I wish I could be there.

I used to feel the same way about malls. They had a sense of order and consistency that was calming and made me feel safe. But that was a long, long time ago.

You were at your highschool; my school, today, and I really enjoyed listening to you speak. Listening to how you got started and your inspiration is actually inspiring me to keep writing poetry and hopefully more. I hope to read your next books when they come out. Thank you for coming today!
