Kevin Sampsell & Monica Drake: Jan 10

Kevin Sampsell and Monica Drake, two Portland-based writers I greatly admire, will read Thursday the 10th, 7:30PM, at Powell’s Books on Hawthorne:

Kevin Sampsell, author of the new story collection, Beautiful Blemish, has edited The Insomniac Reader, an anthology of short stories and essays that explore the dark sides (literally and figuratively) of people and the strange details of what some of them do at night while most of us sleep. With contributions from such stellar authors as Jonathan Lethem, Aimee Bender, Michelle Tea, Jonathan Ames, Rick Moody, and more, The Insomniac Reader promises to keep you up until the wee hours. Sampsell will be reading with Monica Drake, a writer and journalist who will present her own story from the anthology, “Gymkhana.”
