Volume Reading Series Headley Shteyngart Seidlinger

Maria Dahvana Headley, Gary Shteyngart, Michael J Seidlinger

Author Gary Shteyngart will be at Spotty Dog Books and Ale in Hudson October 13 as part of the Volume Reading Series. It's a free event. ("Save your $$ for books and beer!")

Shteyngart is, of course, the bestselling author of novels such as Super Sad True Love Story and Absurdistan. His new novel -- Lake Success -- was released last month. Here's Shteyngart talking about the book with NPR's Scott Simon.

The Volume lineup for that night includes two more authors:

MARIA DAHVANA HEADLEY is a New York Times bestselling author, most recently of The Mere Wife, Magonia, Aerie, Queen of Kings, and The Year of Yes. She grew up in rural Idaho on a survivalist sled-dog ranch, and now lives in Brooklyn. Her work has been supported by the MacDowell Colony and Arte Studio Ginestrelle, among other organizations.


MICHAEL J SEIDLINGER is an Asian American author of a number of books including My Pet Serial Killer and Standard Loneliness Package. He's currently working on a novel, a nonfiction book about death, and a poetry collection. He serves as Library and Academic Marketing Manager at Melville House, Editor-at-Large for Electric Literature, and is a member of The Accomplices.

The event starts at 7 pm on Saturday, October 13. There will be a DJ set following the authors, along with a book signing.

Earlier: "The man does not remember telling his glasses about enjoying that restaurant, but somehow they know."

You could hit one every day of the week and you see a lot of familiar faces after a few weeks and get to know the other parents. They are at a variety of times which helped for the constantly changing nap schedule. ...
