The Prague MicroFestival…

…that starts tomorrow will celebrate Cartographies of the In-Between, the book of essays on my work that Peter Cockelbergh edited. Alas, I cannot be in Prague, though I will do a reading — presented live by Peter Cockelbergh who is right now in the train from Brussels to Prague — tomorrow at 6p.m. local time via a Skype videocast that will be screened at Klub K4 in the good city of Prague.

Comment on “The Prague MicroFestival…”

  1. Double alas, I cannot be in Prague either. I will not be doing a reading. Rather than a train ride from Brussels to Prague, I shall be walking around Maple. I will, however, think of you. Congratulations!!!
