OK, any Bay Area people, this is your chance.
Just wanted to let you know that next Thursday is your only chance this year to hear what I've been up to, as I will be reading two chapters from my forthcoming novel. (details below)
I'm not planning to do any more readings until the book is published, and the novel isn't even completed yet. Which means, we're talking 2004 at the earliest before you get to hold a copy of your own. In any event, this could be the last reading for a long while.
It will be me reading with my friend Kirk Read, an amazing, funny writer and performer, so it should be a good night out.
Here are the details:

Brand new writing from Kirk Read and Jeff Walsh
By turns provocative, moving and extremely funny, Kirk Read (www.kirkread.com) is the author of How I Learned to Snap, a memoir about being openly gay in a small southern high school. The book was named an Honor Book by the American Library Association and was nominated for a Lambda Literary Award. Called ?a soulful, naughty, queer Huck Finn? by Tim Miller, he was most recently part of the Neo Dandy Cabaret at the New Conservatory Theater.
Jeff Walsh founded Oasis Magazine (www.oasismag.com), an online writing site for queer and questioning youth, in 1995. He has been an ACLU plaintiff against Internet censorship on several occasions. He is working on his first novel.
