Many Voices, One Nation: Washington DC

Tonight at the American Library Association conference in Washington DC, I'll be reading from Miraculous Air: Journey of a Thousand Miles through Baja California, the Other Mexico (an excerpt which also appears in Mexico: A Traveler's Literary Companion) for the "Many Voices, One Nation: Washington DC" program, the kick-off event. Some of the other writers I'll be reading with are E. Ethelbert Miller, Anosh Irani, and Tim Tingle. Never been to ALA? Click here.

(Speaking of many voices, etc--- last night, while working though a Bento box at the Dupont Circle Teaism, couldn't help overhearing snippets from the tables on either side, one discussing Bolivia, the other, Egypt. I didn't pay much attention, however, as I was so thoroughly engrossed in Judith Martin's charm-fest of a new tome about Venice, No Vulgar Hotel.) More anon.
