Thursday night. Thank you, thank you, thank you. To the other panelists of “Writing in the Margins”—Sophia Nahli Allison, Olivia Cole, Felicia Holman, and Diana Pando—for being so inspiring. To Tempestt Hazel, Jennifer Patiño Cervantes, and Reuben Westmaas of Sixty Inches From Center for organizing it all. To everyone who came and sat in the audience and took notes throughout the discussion and had brilliant things to say themselves. Also hey thanks childhood hero R.L. Stine for replying to me on Twitter after I told you I name-dropped you during the panel I can die happy and haunt a house now.

Get Your Kicks

Sixty Inches From Center’s “Dialogue: Writing in the Margins” event is this Thursday, 6-8pm. Come! It’ll be my first time on a panel and I’d love to see your beautiful faces in the audience.

Illinois residents: The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago is free every Tuesday! Spend a summer evening on their terrace with some live jazz.

And congrats to Germany for winning the World Cup! Fact: Exactly 10 years ago, I was living in Germany. (In high school, thanks to an übernerd program I was in, I got to be a part of a foreign exchange, spending 3 weeks in Hamburg and 1 week frolicking all over the south.)

I’ve been invited to speak on a panel about building platforms for artists who are traditionally marginalized, happening July 17. Thanks, Sixty Inches From Center!

Happy 4th, ‘murricans!
