THIS SATURDAY…

At 3PM, Don Wentworth will host this at the Carnegie Library in Oakland.

You may ask yourself, Who all is actually reading at this? I put that very question to Don & here’s what he said:

Well, they didn’t list them individually – supposed to be any or all who are in the anthology – here are some highlights:
Michael Albright, Joan Bauer, Jennifer Jackson Berry, Ziggy Edwards, Judy Robinson John Stokes, Arlene Weiner and more – no guarantee any of these will read, it’s whoever shows, but I think most will.

From there, Don will be heading to Erie to read at this, which is going on pretty much all day.

Don will go on at 8:10. Here‘s the full schedule.
