This Monday, a number of smart and fantastic women (including Meghan Daum, Heather Juergensen, Erin Ergenbright, Michelle Richmond, Samina Ali, Kimberly Askew, Carla Kihlstedt, Flor Morales and Erin Cressida Wilson) will be reading from The May Queen at A Clean, Well-Lighted Place for Books. The fun starts at 7:00 PM. And then after the reading, there’s an after party at the Hotel Rex bar. Your correspondent will be attending both affairs. Do come by and say hello.
