I have been chosen to be one of four "reading pugilists" at the 6-Year Anniversary of Literary Death Match on March 6th in NYC at The Back Room. I will be bucking the LDM norm and read one of my rock 'em sock 'em comix. Please come, judge, and enjoy!
New York City
March 6, 2012
Brace yourselves for the Literary Death Match 6-Year Anniversary Spectacular in which we return to The Back Room, the spot of our first-ever event, with some of the most talented people on the face of the NYC — or anyone's — planet.
The night's fierce foursome of reading pugilists will include National Book Award winner Darin Strauss (author of Half a Life), Emmy Award-winning artist Dean Haspiel (creator of the Eisner Award-nominated Billy Dogma), multi-award-winning author Aryn Kyle (author of Boys and Girls Like You and Me), and Katharine Bakeless Nason Prize-winner Kim Dana Kupperman (author of I Just Lately Started Buying Wings).
They'll be judged by a genius trio that includes multi-award-winning children's book author Jon Scieszka (author of the Spaceheadz series), actor/comedian/playwright Taylor Negron and award-winning comedian/writer Sara Benincasa (author of Agorafabulous).
Hosted by LDM creator Todd Zuniga. Produced by Erin Valerio.
