Had a great time with Leigh and Lux. It’s very impressive what they’ve built. We sat down in the wake of BinderCon LA and talked about gender politics and community-building and how much work it takes to run a grassroots organization. It’s one thing to know about social injustices; it’s another thing to do something about them. These guys are doers. And they’re helping an awful lot of people.
In today’s monologue, I talk about AWP and the LA Times Festival of Books. And I plug my upcoming appearances at Literary Death Match and the Lit/Comedy Roundtable.
