Wisconsin is a Place

Sunday, June 13th, 2010

A few Sunday’s back I listened to Jodeci’s “All My Life” with Nicholas Peterson and we both sang along. It was sublime. And then the weekend following, four of us packed into a car and drove into Wisconsin, a land of at least milk and bratwurst but I can’t speak for honey. Please note that my yellow hat reads, “Rap Hurts,” and that I inherited it from a rapper from Minnesota who has no idea that I inherited it.

So Quick, These

Hobart has just posted a nice, healthy roundtable discussion among twelve writers who either have a book out recently or one coming soon. Some truly interesting people in the group (who I won’t link here because it’s work, but you’ve got fingers, you’ve got a search bar), and I thank them for the experience: Jedediah Berry, Andrew Ervin, Roxane Gay, Rachel B. Glaser, Julia Holmes, Caitlin Horrocks, Holly Goddard Jones, Tom McAllister, Laura van den Berg, Kevin Wilson, and Mike Young. And then me. Too.

Also: I’m a blogging machine over at Dude Life. Travels and photos and skate videos and a huge amount of bullshit. Swing by.

Also also! On Saturday, June 12, I’ll teach a three-hour workshop on dialogue at the University of Chicago’s downtown Gleacher Center. Would love to see you…info here.
