reading instead of rocking
i saw yesterday that richard ford is coming to the vancouver international writers festival. cool. but who would have ever thought i'd be thinking about going to something to watch someone read from a novel? one i am going to buy and read anyways....but i am. forget the rock and roll...god dammit i'm going to rock out with richard ford....maybe. i haven't actually decided if i will go but i may...so even the thought of paying to see someone read freaks me out...is it an age thing? i remember seeing spalding gray years ago, twice in fact, and loved it, but he wasn't really reading from a book. i suppose richard will answer a few questions, chat a little. or chat a lot.
