Young Lions Reading: John Jodzio, Matthew Salesses, Kevin Fanning & Daphne Kalotay
November 1, 2010
Join us at Arts at the Armory on November 1st at 7pm for a night of wonderfully hilarious and devastatingly poignant stories from these shiningly bright up-and-comers.
John Jodzio reads from his new collection of short stories If You Lived Here You'd Already Be Home. Haven't heard of Jodzio? Here's what Chuck Klosterman had to say about him: "John Jodzio is the best kind of modern fiction writer: a thematic traditionalist who feels totally new."
Jodzio is joined by local authors Matthew Salesses, Kevin Fanning and Daphne Kalotay.
