Greetings, culture lovers (as Bullwinkle used to say, in the character of “Mister Know-it-All”). Here’s a quick note that I’ll be reading at Grinnell College, in Grinnell, Iowa, on Thursday April 5, at 8 PM. Don’t have the exact building here, but I’m sure the reading wouldn’t be hard to track down once you’re on campus. If you’re an Iowan and would like to reach out, please come. I think this is my first time in Iowa since 1982, when I was writing a story for “High Times” magazine, god bless its heart, on the “Five Strangest Places in America.” Several of them were in Iowa– The world’s largest coffee pot, the world’s smallest church, the world’s largest bull, and so on.
In the years since then, it’s become clear to me that the world is full of strange places, and that Iowa is probably neither more nor less full of them than anyplace else.
Still, it’s a delight to be asked back, and I am looking forward to meeting readers and students. Looking forward!
