Stumping Sloth

These guys are coming to your town! Or….probably at least a town very near to the town that you are currently in!!


Peter and Davy Rothbart

So, as many of you know, I have a long nurtured little crush on Davy Rothbart, the founder of FOUND Magazine. I am going miss his tour this year, but YOU should not. I am not at all exaggerating when I tell you that attending the FOUND event in Boston last year was one of the top 5 mostwickedawesome things I have ever experienced. I laughed so hard that I got really really hot and had to take some of my clothes off. That may happen to women at other FOUND events too, so you should definitely go!

I have also been reading Davy’s new book, “The Lone Surfer of Montana, Kansas” and I will bet you $63 that he doesn’t even know how amazing it is. It’s a series of short stories, all of which contain a whiff of autobiography and personal experience, even if it is sometimes vicarious (as it is in one hysterical, heartbreaking story that is written in all caps from the perspective of a prison inmate in a writing class). You can buy the book here, but I suggest you check your local, independent bookstore first. If they don’t have it, ask them why because that’s just crazy talk talkin’!

Check out the tour schedule and if you can make it to one of these shows, GO. You will be so glad you did. Trust me – I am so totally trustworthy!!
