More Authors Doing Their Bit for Tsunami Relief

by Ron Hogan is sponsoring "Thrown Together," a reading this Sunday night at the meatpacking district eatery Jefferson (121 W. 10th Street). All of the $15 you contribute at the door will go to Oxfam and Heifer International, and in exchange you get complimentary hors d’ouevres and readings from Adam Goodheart, Ayun Halliday, Suketu Mehta, Bob Morris, and Daniel Asa Rose... each of whom has written some nonfiction set in the affected region.

Meanwhile, comic book artists Jeff Bone and Dave Sim are contributing original work for eBay auctions to raise relief funds. The charity auctions are being overseen by Toronto comics shop The Beguiling, which promises to have lots more artwork in the weeks ahead, so this one might be worth bookmarking and checking again later.
