Read to Rebuild

Read to Rebuild, the Haiti benefit we threw last night, raised over a thousand bucks for relief efforts in Haiti.  And I can’t think of a better way to raise it.  The readers were amazing, the music was excellent, the wine and beer and coffee and food were stellar.

Tom Spanbauer dedicated a copy of The Man Who Fell in Love With the Moon to me and my lovely wife, from the friend who gave it to us, via him.  (So complex!  So accommodating!)  Ariel Gore made me tear up.  Ben Parzybok explored Couch on a Kindle.  Nobody got into a fistfight about being asked to take off their shoes at the door.

If you couldn’t make it and you still want to donate, you can throw a few bucks into the pot here.

  1. Thanks for your part in it – it was really fun. And great to meet Amanda, too, as another Jack Gilbert Fan.
