Daniel Mallory Ortberg Reads from The Merry Spinster
Daniel Mallory Ortberg reads from his new story collection The Merry Spinster: Tales of Everyday Horror. Ortberg is author of Texts from Jane Eyre, Advice columnist at Dear Prudence - Slate.com, and co-founder of beloved website The Toast.
Readers of The Toast will instantly recognize Ortberg's boisterous good humor and uber-nerd swagger: those new to Ortberg's oeuvre will delight in this collection's unique spin on fiction, where something a bit mischievous and unsettling is always at work just beneath the surface.
The reading is hosted and organized by local resident Chelsea Rose Kurnick in partnership with The Astro. Visiting poet Nicole Connolly will open the reading. A Q&A with Ortberg will follow.
Books will be for sale onsite through Copperfield's Books.
