Jesse Eisenberg, known by most out there as a Hollywood actor, recently went on tour with his first book, a short story collection called Bream Gives Me Hiccups. SPL asked me to assist with event management, and I found myself working alongside some familiar faces, such as Karen from Elliott Bay Books and Chris from SPL. Karen, Chris and I have worked dozens of author events together over the years, and lending a hand with this event felt like hopping back on a beloved bicycle. I was also excited to speak with Sherman Alexie - I'd just read War Dances and felt honored to be able to tell him in person how powerfully the book had affected me. A more detailed account of the event is posted on my Directed Fieldwork site.
