Another 2012 Goal Met: Readings At Tattered Cover

With the Kevin J. Anderson reading at the Tattered Cover on Colfax, I hit another of the goals I set for myself for 2012. I wanted to attend more readings this year. Tattered Cover has a good selection, so I decided to try to hit at least one a month. Once I even managed to attend two in one month. With the Kevin J. Anderson reading, I finally managed to do that.

Here’s what I attended this year:

January: Ben Marcus, The Flame Alphabet

February: Andre Dubus III, Townie

March: Nick Arvin, The Reconstructionist

April: Cheryl Strayed, Wild

May: Jackson Galaxy, Cat Daddy

June: Ben Fountain, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk

July: Gregory Hill, East of Denver

August: Peter Heller, The Dog Stars

September: Molly Ringwald, When It Happens to You and Michael Chabon, Telegraph Avenue

October: Sandra Cisneros, Have You Seen Marie?

November: Linda Hull, The Big Bang

December: Kevin J. Anderson, Clockwork Angels

Sometimes someone I knew was coming and it was an easy choice. Other times, I didn’t know anybody for a month and I looked to see who seemed interesting, using that as an opportunity to broaden my reading horizons. Regardless, I had a good time and managed to get to at least one a month.
