Stevan Allred, whose linked short story collection A Simplified Map of the Real World is forthcoming in September, has a series of upcoming readings and appearances.
Leigh Anne Krantz will interview Stevan as part of the “Between the Covers” author interview series at 11 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 5.
A Simplified Map of the Real World launches at 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 12, 2o13, at Powell’s City of Books on Burnside.
Stevan will read from the book and answer questions at 7 p.m. at Village Books in Bellingham on Friday, Sept. 20, and for that reading, we’ll be having the books printed right at Village Books using the in-house Espresso Book Machine.
Our Seattle launch is slated for 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21, at Elliott Bay Book Company, where we’ll be celebrating artist Laurie Paus’ illustrations. (That’s why it’s a launch party and not just a reading!)
On Oct. 5-6, Forest Avenue Press will be at Wordstock at the Oregon Convention Center. The press will have its own booth, and Stevan is scheduled to read from his newly released collection as well as to participate in a Brave on the Page panel that will also feature Lauren Kessler, Matt Love, and Christi Krug–local authors with books out in 2013. Stay tuned for specific dates and times for those appearances.
