This week I am preparing for Sarah Vowell's upcoming visit to Atlanta. I have my reviewer's copy of her latest book about the Americanization of Hawaii, Unfamiliar Fishes. I saw Vowell when she was at the Carter Center two years ago promoting The Wordy Shipmates (read about it here) and am curious to compare the performances. She's part of the Savannah College of Art Design's (SCAD) Ivy Writers Series. The reading and signing is scheduled for Tuesday, April 5th at 6:30 p.m. at the SCAD Atlanta Events Space, 4th floor Building C., 1600 Peachtree St. NW. Check out the A Cappella Books website for details about getting a signed book.
For a taste of the book, check out this promotional video narrated by Vowell:
Also, I've never seen an event at the SCAD, and one of my blog goals this year to see authors in venues that I have not been to before. Though it maybe surprising to some, last month I made my first visit to Manuel's Tavern for Lang Whitaker's launch of the Bobby Cox book. Such dedication.
