Today’s challenge might make some weep and gnash their teeth. Is it because I ask you to record footage of yourself hauling rocks up a steep hill? Undergo dental drilling with no laughing gas? Order a McRib sandwich and consume the whole thing?
No, no and no. All you must do to earn another lottery ticket is to attend my reading tonight at 7:15 pm at the Decatur library, 215 Sycamore Street, 30030. The reading is sponsored by the Georgia Center for the Book, and good times will be had by all.
I’m reading with Sandra Novack, whose novel Precious is getting all kinds of rave reviews. The reading is free as a bird, only lasts an hour, and will involve the dispersing of cupcakes to a few lucky audience members. So come on down to Decatur!! (Which, fyi, is a very cool town about 5 miles away from downtown Atlanta.)
But here is where the weeping and gnashing of teeth comes in: What happens to those of you who live no where near Decatur, GA? Well, folks, AirTram has some amazing deals on flights, as does Delta. (joking, joking.)
If you can’t get here, all you have to do to earn a ticket is force encourage one of your Atlanta or Decatur dwelling friends to go to the event. Once there, just have them say, “Chelsea Kaplan sent me,” or “Liz Harmon sent me.”
Hope to see some of y’all there!
