Holiday Festivities: Reading with Rafael

I am so looking forward to joining Baltimore’s own Hometown Boy Rafael Alvarez this Saturday, December 17th, starting at 2:00 pm, for his Tenth Annual Holiday Literary Extravaganza at the Southeast Anchor branch of the Enoch Pratt Free Library–or, as Rafael likes to call it, the Frank Zappa branch. Either way, it’s located at 3601 Eastern Avenue, Baltimore, Maryland 21224.

I’ll be reading a Christmas-themed excerpt from Up the Hill to Home as part of the festivities. Going against the seasonal sensibilities, we’re hoping for a 0% chance of snow–but there’s almost a 100% chance of deviled eggs! It’s an Alvarez extravaganza, after all!
