Drink & Listen to Authors for a Good Cause

by Ron Hogan

If you've never been to one of Amanda Stern's Happy Ending events, the one coming up this Wednesday (January 19th) would be a good time to start. Not just because the readers for the evening will be former college roommates Tom Perrotta (he of the ever-changing book covers) and Mark Dow (read an excerpt from American Gulag), or because Kimya Dawson will be the musical guest. In addition to all those reasons, you should consider going because it's going to be a fundraiser for tsunami relief; Amanda hasn't chosen a charitable organization that will get the money collected at the door yet because she'll be leaving that up to the audience, which will have information about several different relief groups and then vote on where the funds should go.
