New York, Modcloth, and some cool links.

HELLO! I have a few things to tell you.

PROLOGUE: I had a dream that Bitch Magazine's review of my book started with "Nicole Georges is so OVER." and then went on to say how I'd peaked in 2006 with Invincible Summer Volume II. When I woke up, however, I had a really nice blurb from Eileen Myles that referred to me as "epic". Thank you, Eileen! I think I was conjuring this blurb by staying up late reading her book, Inferno.

1. I am going to be reading THIS THURSDAY (August 30th) at Bluestockings in New York with the beautiful Cristy Road and Cassie J. Sneider.Come and see us!

2. I did an illustration for ModCloth's new stylebook. Click the link to see the outfit they put together inspired by my drawing! You can purchase prints of this in my etsy shop.


4. There is something called the POC (People of Color) Zine Project and they are going on tour this fall. If I were you and I lived near any of the cities they're visiting, I would hustle myself over to one of their shows. If you don't live near any of their shows, check out their site anyway.

5. Two blogs I regularly read (both are for ADULTS ONLY):
Mrs. Morrissey by Tracie Egan Morrissey
Kat Stories by Kat Koshka

I think that's it for now. Okay. Goodbye. n.g.

READINGS in August! Pdx & NYC

Hello! I have 3 readings to tell you about:

Clutch McBastard and I will be making a rare live appearance together, being interviewed live for Destination DIY at this event: Makin' It with DESTINATION DIY
Wednesday, August 22, 2012 at ADX in Portland
7:00pm until 9:00pm
Suggested $3-5 donation; ALL AGES:
It's a cool event! Details below.

I'm doing a reading at a house party in NE Portland
August 24th at 7 p.m. to celebrate the release of
Golden Brothers- sts's scandalous new book!
5205 19th street
and YOU

and finally
7-9 p.m. at Bluestockings in New York,
I'm reading some recent work with
Cassie J. Sneider and Cristy Road.
We are calling it Zine-A-Rama, and you may get some live advice out of the deal.

Here's some info on Destination DIY: "Makin' It: A listening party and project night," in partnership with SCRAP and ADX, is a strange pairing of rock music and public radio held together by hot glue. We'll have a live interview featuring zinesters Nicole Georges and Greg Means, authors of "Invincible Summer" and "Clutch". Bring your project to bead, weave or silkscreen while swigging free Full Sail beer and noshing on free Tribute's pizza! DJ Buzzkill will spin and we will listen to snippets of Destination DIY, the independent public radio show about all kinds of creativity. Bring your project or a few dollars for SCRAP, who will have gobs of crafty supplies. It all happens at ADX, the creative community space in Southeast Portland. So bring weird works in progress and get inspired by your own creative community!
