Here’s a picture from Ann Arbor, snapped by the cellphone of my friend M:
I know it’s very small, but if I blow it up, it will be all fuzzy. Humor me. She tells me it is the Love Marriage sign in the window of Borders in Ann Arbor. I believe that this is the flagship Borders store—the original of the chain. I remember when Borders first came to Maryland! It should be interesting to see where it started. Ann Arbor May 28th.
I chatted with Sree Sreenivasan, one of the founders of SAJA, for SAJA Radio this morning. We talked about my plans as SAJA VP, my forthcoming novel, my journalism career and its connection to my literary life, and how the media covers Sri Lanka. Listen here. You can also listen to chats with the new secretary, Anusha Srivastava, or the new president, Sandeep Junnarkar.
UPDATED 1/25: CHICAGO ADDED: With great excitement, I present the first version of my book tour schedule. Thanks to Jynne Martin at Random House! These dates are all confirmed; others will be added. I’ll repost this list with updates.
If you’re interested in having me read in your city, please e-mail me. I’m especially happy to visit schools and universities!
