This Just In: Michael Kimball and Blake Butler at Antenna, June 9

Event: Feb 25, 2011


Michael Kimball will embark upon a reading tour of the Southern United States toward the end of this month and has just added a stop in New Orleans, at the Antenna Gallery, on June 9. Kimball is the author of three devastating books, the most recent of which, Us, came out in the U.S. this week thanks to Tyrant Books. The Believer called his novel Dear Everybody a “curatorial masterpiece.” He’ll be bringing along with him Blake Butler, author of Scorch Atlas and, most recently, There is No Year. Butler also edits HTMLGIANT.

This reading will melt your mind before the summer heat melts the rest of you.

Stay tuned for an interview with Michael Kimball and an excerpt from Us on Room 220.
