Live in Portland? Go to Bedtime Stories for Adults this Friday.

Bedtime Stories for Adults, Chelsea Cain, Chuck Palahniuk, Events, Lidia Yuknavi

One of my favorite parts of AWP in Seattle earlier this year was Bedtime Stories for Adults, hosted by The Elliott Bay Book Company. Chuck Palahniuk, Chelsea Cain, Lidia Yuknavitch, Monica Drake, and Suzy Vitello wore pajamas and read stories and there were also beach balls and glow sticks and boxes of candy and a bunch of other silly, fun things. I enjoyed it so much I wrote about it in my Path to Publication column

If you live in the Pacific Northwest, and have yet to experience this special brand of literary bacchanalia, then you're in luck: Tickets are still available for Bedtime Stories for Adults, taking place this Friday at the Aladdin Theater. Chuck, Chelsea, Lidia, and Monica will all be on stage to celebrate the release of Chelsea's newest book, One Kick

Here are the details: 

Who: Chuck Palahniuk, Chelsea Cain, Lidia Yuknavitch and Monica Drake
Where: Hosted by Annie Bloom's Books at the Aladdin Theater
When: August 22nd. Doors open at 7pm, Event begins at 8pm

Attendees are encouraged to dress in pajamas—the more outrageous the better. Annie Bloom's will be selling literary loot, and everyone who buys a ticket for this event will get a copy of Chelsea new book.

Apparently there are going to be some super secret special guests, too. I don't even know who but I'm already jealous.

I went to the one with Willy Vlautin in LA. It was probably the greatest thing ever.

The one in Milwaukee was pretty rad too. Chuck read "pilgrim" off my glowstick ball. It's the only time a famous person has read my writing.
