Cody’s, 4th Street, Berkeley

June 15th, 2006

Now I’m in Portland, but I’m posting about last night’s reading at Cody’s in Berkeley.


We had to rig another impromptu screen, because they didn’t know I was going to be doing a visual presentation. But it worked out just fine. There was a large, very engaged audience.


They had questions not just about Fun Home but about the trajectory of my Dykes To Watch Out For career, and were coming up with all kinds of business strategies about how to make the strip more sustainable. It was a surprisingly un-Berkeley-ish sort of discussion.

Driving back to the city across the Bay Bridge, I took this picture of Mt. Tam. God, what a beautiful place.

Last night a whole buncha wonderful people came to my reading at the community center in SF. The building is this huge handsome place, all very well-appointed. They had excellent equipment too–look how big they could project the pictures from my book.

I’m sorry this is such a brief post. Maybe I’ll elaborate later, but right now I have to race off to my reading in Berkeley at Cody’s.
