A few updates to the musical portion of tomorrow night’s lineup at the Story/Song event at Casablanca Coffee here in Nashville. In addition to cohost Mike Willis, queue Clay Evans (an at-times Bill Withers-esque — for lack of a better on-the-spot description, he’s def. got his own thing going — songwriter and performer, based in Nashville) and Chattanooga’s Noah Collins.
For the remainder of the details, read this.
AND: If you’ve been missing the ongoing serialization of a chapter from NY-based writer Tommy Zurhellen’s first novel, Nazareth, North Dakota (due out from Atticus Books April 15), check out part 3, just published. I first came across Zurhellen’s work in an issue of the Birmingham-based Red Mountain Review we were both published in. That, too, with an excerpt called “Song of Simeon.” Let’s just say the entire book’s worth checking out: It’s due out from Atticus April 15. Preorders are being taken now.
Speaking of preorders, our Kickstarter campaign for the now-almost-finished All Hands On: THE2NDHAND After 10, T2H’s 10th-anniversary reader, was successful. If you didn’t reserve your copy there, $15 preorders are now open here. It features a dozen or so new shorts as well as the best of our repeat writers from the last six-seven years, since the publication of the prior All Hands book. We’re shooting for an early summer release, events to follow in late summer and fall.
