My new novel, The Plot Against Hip Hop, will be officially published November 1, 2011. But in the internet era that's a very elastic date. If you go to any of the major on line book sites (Barnes & Nobles, Amazon) or to www.AkashicBooks.com you can pre-order and receive the book well before publication. To support Plot I will be doing a bunch of different appearances starting in September.
Sept. 3 I will in Seattle at the Bumbershoot Festival appearing on the Words & Ideas Stage at the Leo K. Theater talking about how music inspires literature at 3:30p.m.
Sept. 18 poet Mary Karr and I will be in conversation about music and literature at the Brooklyn Book Fair held in downtown BK. Start time will likely be 11a.m, but TBA for now.
