20 May Pittsburgh!
Here’s a blurb from the Pittsburgh City Paper Short List of things to do May 20 – 26.
One of the items mentioned is a book reading that I’ll be doing.
Thanks to Autumn House Press for setting it up and to the East End Book Exchange for hosting!
Stop on by if you are in town!

“I was nine years older than the country I had come to live in,” writes Jill Kandel of moving to Zambia as a newlywed in 1981. The North Dakota native has since lived and worked all over the world, but it was that initial overseas move that provided the material for her new memoir, So Many Africas: Six Years in a Zambian Village. The manuscript won publication via Pittsburgh’s Autumn House Press’ nonfiction contest.
The widely published Kandel, who now lives in Minnesota, reads Thursday night at East End Book Exchange with Pittsburgh-based poet and memoirist Lori Jakiela.
