Johanna Skibsrud

My fabulous client Johanna Skibsrud will be at Antigone Books, 411 N 4th Avenue, promoting her second book on Friday, March 29 at 7:00 PM. The reading will be followed by refreshments and a question and answer session. This is from the flyer promoting the event:

Join us for a literary short story collection double header with Johanna Skibsrud, author of This Will Be Difficult to Explain (Norton, $14.95) and Jamie Quatro, author of I Want to Show You More (Grove, $24.00). Skibsrud’s collection of masterful stories introduces a cast of characters experiencing life-defining moments that weave throughout their everyday lives. Time and again they find themselves confronted with what they didn’t know they didn’t know, at that point of intersection between impossibility and desire. Her first novel, The Sentimentalists, won the Scotiabank Giller prize, Canada’s most prestigious literary award.

John Melillo

Just as cool as his wife Johanna Skibsrud (see post above), my fabulous client John Melillo is creating a buzz as singer/guitar player of Algae & Tentacles. Is that a marvelous name or what? Check out this review in the Tucson Weekly
