Thanks, Rocky Mountain News! One of my Iowa classmates, Nina Siegal, is also on this list.
Me on The Millions
Read some of my reading recs for the year here. Thanks to my Iowa pal Edan Lepucki for asking me to do that! It’s a great blog.

Thanks to the diligent reader who noted that I hadn’t put my reading tomorrow up here! I’m psyched to be reading at one of my favorite childhood haunts–the National Museum of Natural History, at SALTAF, courtesy of NETSAP-DC.

Love Marriage on the Prairie
The prairie, by the way, is as beautiful as Laura Ingalls Wilder made me think it would be. Thanks for a warm welcome, K-State.
Check out the book tour page for address and date details. (But, to be brief, August 28 at Book Soup in West Hollywood!)
The Washington Post
Love Marriage was reviewed in The Washington Post! It’ll be in tomorrow’s print edition, but you can read the review online now. The lede of the piece references (among other things) an essay I wrote when I was 19 and a freshman in college.
Bethesda Magazine, Italian TV
The latest issue of Bethesda Magazine has a story about me and Becca. It isn’t available online, so head to newsstands if you want to read!
Also, I just found the link to the interview I did with three other South Asian authors for Italian Web/TV while I was in Torino. You can watch that here. Don’t be thrown by the Italian if you don’t speak it—it switches to English!
I’m scheduled to read at Book Soup in Los Angeles on August 28! I’m excited for a return to the West Coast.
And it turns out that I will be reading at Prairie Lights after all! One year from publication… to the day! April 8, 2009—a day after I read at Grinnell. I am already looking forward to going to Iowa.
I’ll be visiting several schools over the next year. If you’re interested in having me visit your school, please write to me via the contact form.
