Shakespeare and Sons, Prague

  • Google Calendar ICS

I still can't believe that I get to read in the storied Prague Summer Program for Writers, take the editorial staff of B O D Y out for a whiskey, and roam the streets where Kafka lived and beautifully suffered! And I get to do it all with Kate Gale who will be speaking about publishing and also reading from her gorgeous poetry on a different evening.
