San Rafael ’Squatch Sighting

I’ve been invited to read from the good ol’ metaphysical Sasquatch time-skipping bardo freakout as part of San Rafael’s LitQuake this Saturday. Come on down, I’ll be wearing my Román Leão mask; I’ll be masquerading (I think Bob Dylan said that). This from the Blue Moon Comics website:

An All-Day Festival of Books and Authors in Downtown/West End San Rafael
When: Saturday, October 11th, 11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
Where: Blue Moon Comics, 1560 4th St., San Rafael

We will be having people read from various books and Graphic novels.

Román Leão will read from his book, inside a broken clock.

Katherine Elizabeth will read from her book of poetry, Fairy Tale and Ferris Wheels.

Charles Yoakum (artist/writer/inker) reads from his comic, The Carnival.

And special guest comedian Mark Pitta will read from a selected comic book.

Conquering The World One Awesome Bookstore At A Time

I popped into Whyte’s Booksmith in San Anselmo to pick up the copy of John Barth’s Lost in the Funhouse that I ordered in a weird postmodernist frenzy, and, low and behold, what intriguing novel by a local up-and-coming author did they have on the shelf? That’s right, Román Leão’s inside a broken clock: a modern fable! It looks right—all nestled up between T. E. Lawrence and Harper Lee. The three of them will have lots to talk about I’m sure.
