Bill Gordon reading, TONIGHT @ 7:00

I wish I could go: a reading of a novel about Jersey City!

WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 25, 7PM: Join us for "First Fiction" night as two fresh voices share tales from their debut works. BILL GORDON is the author of the remarkable novel MARY AFTER ALL (Dial Press, December 2005), which tells the story of Mary, a Jersey City native who comes of age during the turbulent 1970s and discovers her own route to independence along the way. RONNA WINEBERG's award-winning collection of stories, SECOND LANGUAGE (New Rivers Press' Many Voices Project, 2005) has been described as "like entering a series of complex, absorbing worlds…" and "beautifully written and deeply satisfying" by critically-acclaimed novelist Margot Livesey. Bluestockings, the Lower East Side's best independent bookseller and cafe, is located at 172 Allen Street (between Stanton and Rivington). FREE.

I met Bill this fall & just got a copy of his book, Mary After All (thank you, Lauren!).

I'll be home in JC, giving the dear one her bath...
