From the event page on Facebook:

Hello, friends! As most of you probably know already, I'm leaving Austin for Asheville at the end of June. As I was packing up my crates and crates of books, thinking, "My kingdom for a Vicodin," and, "Oh my god, I'm gonna miss so many people and there isn't enough time to see everyone!" I had this idea of trying to arrange a somewhat last minute, one-time reading series, hosted and curated by yours truly, and luckily Malvern Books was kind enough to agree to host it. 

I'll read for my final time in Austin, but I'm far more excited about the four fantastic writers that have agreed to read along with me, because they are my dear friends and also just so happen to be my favorite writers. It is truly my dream lineup, and I hope it will float your boat, too. We have:

—Callie Collins
—Meg Freitag
—Claire Hoffman
—and Lisa (motherfucking) Olstein.

Dreamy, right? Meg and Callie are also departing Austin, so it'll likely be your last chance to see them read in town for a while, too. As far as I know, Claire and Lisa are staying put, but missing either of them give a reading is equivalent to missing a full year of your own life, so you have all the reasons to come and no good reason not to. (DVR the O.J. documentary, you can watch it without commercials that way anyhow.)
