Wife Beaters & Cut-Offs: Southern Summer Comfort Book Tour

Chloe Caldwell, Elizabeth Ellen, Mary Miller, Brandi Wells and Donora Hillard are getting in a rental van and sailing the South.

I’m really excited about this. The Southern part of the US needs as much love as we can get. It’s hot down here, and we’ve got mosquitos and no gay marriage.

If you live in one of these cities (Austin, Houston, New Orleans, Oxford, Tuscaloosa or Atlanta), or if you are feeling generous, you can donate money on the tour’s Kickstarter page here.

If you catch me in Houston, I’ll buy you a beer and we can talk for a long time about racism/sexism/Tao Lin.

Here are the tour dates:

July 11th – Austin, TX – Domy Books, 7pm
July 12th – Houston, TX – Domy Books, 7pm
July 13th – New Orleans, LA
July 14th – Oxford, MS – Square Books, 6pm
July 16th – Tuscaloosa, AL
July 17th – Atlanta, GA – Beep Beep, 8pm

      we did some detective work and figured out he DOES have a penis and is therefore misogynistic and therefore OUT OF THE VAN. (he can follow in a separate car though, at a safe distance)
