Virginia on Diane Rehm!

Virginia was on the Diane Rehm Show on Valentine’s Day! If you didn’t tune in, you can listen to it here (podcast also available!). During her DC trip great forces conspired against our intrepid friend. Still, she managed to make time to get together with friends and helped dig a certain smarty pants’ car out of solid ice!

Tonight’s Reading Cancelled :(

Because of the sheet of ice that is much of the DC area for the next couple of days, tonight’s reading at Border’s (18th & K Sts, NW) has been cancelled.

bumped from Today show by Anna Nicole Smith

They may reschedule me, they may not. I’m sort of disappointed, sort of relieved, but definitely eyebrow-waxed.

And I get to go out tonight after all, no 6 a.m. call time, and bravely try to have fun despite this terrible loss of a woman who was famous for marrying an old rich guy. I just hope I and the country can move on somehow.

TV: Weekend TODAY

Interview on National broadcast of Weekend TODAY!

TV: Sunday Today in NY (local Ch 4)

Interview on Sunday Today in NY on local NYC channel 4! Apparently, I’ll be on around 8:20.

READING (CANCELED!): Borders 1801 K. St., NW, Washington DC

UPDATE: CANCELED due to weather.

Sez Borders’ website, “Virginia Vitzthum, a former sex columnist for Salon.com, investigated the world of online dating, both as a journalist and as a participant, to write I Love You, Let’s Meet. It is the first book to seriously examine modern love and romance in the digital world.”

READING: Sundays at Sunny’s

I’m thrilled and honored to read at my friend Gabriel Cohen’s reading series, Sundays at Sunny’s, along with contributers to Up Is Up But So Is Down, a cool-sounding anthology of 80s downtown writing (Mary Gaitskill, Eric Bogosian, Spalding Gray).

Sunny’s is this wonderful bar right on the water in Red Hook, not terribly close to any subway stops (but next to the newish Fairway).

By bus: take the B61 toward Red Hook from Atlantic Ave. & Court St. (or from the A train midtrain exit at Jay Street Borough Hall). Get off near the end of the line at Van Brunt & Beard streets., walk 1 block right and 1/2 block left. Or take the B77 bus down 9th Street from Park Slope (or from the Smith and 9th Street F train stop–exit at the rear of the train and come down the stairs to street level and the corner bus stop.) Take the bus in the direction of Van Brunt Street and Red Hook.

If you’re driving: From Manhattan, take the Brooklyn Bridge and get off at the Court Street exit–then take a left on Cadman Plaza West, which will turn into Court St. Go about a mile, past Atlantic Avenue, and take a right on Sackett Street. Continue straight for five blocks, across the overpass over the Brooklyn Queens Expressway, and take a left on Van Brunt Street. Continue down almost to the end of Van Brunt (you’ll see the waterfront up ahead) and take a right on Reed Street. Go one block and take a right on Conover Street–you’ll see a big sign that says BAR. That’s Sunny’s.

READING: Adam’s Books (Park Slope)

from Adam:
Virginia Vitzthum, our most local author (she lives less than one block away), has written a book called “I Love You, Lets Meet: Adventures in Online Dating”.

I haven’t read it, but it has a great title. Publishers Weekly says it “leaves no stone unturned” and is “genuinely funny”. I am inclined to believe them, having met the author.

The book is coming out on Thursday February 1, and ON THAT VERY SAME DAY, at
8 pm, Ms. Vitzthum will appear and read (aloud) at Adam’s Books.

I repeat:

THURSDAY FEBRUARY 1, at 8:00 PM: Virginia Vitzthum, of I LOVE YOU, LETS MEET:
Adventures in Online Dating, will unturn no stones at:
456 Bergen Street,
between 5th and 6th Aves,
half a block from the Bergen St.
2, 3 train on Flatbush Ave. Park Slope, Brooklyn.

Be there then.

books have arrived!

so says my publisher; I haven’t seen them yet. So if you come to any of the readings marked on the calendar (Jan. 17 and 23; Feb. 1 and 4th in New York, Feb. 14 in DC, thus far), you can buy one if you want.

there’s a poster

from Dawn Eden’s blog, check it out. The illustration just underlines how totally apples and oranges and not a debate this is. But it should be entertaining — for everyone who’s not public speaker novice moi, anyway.
