April 17th in New York: a party and auction to celebrate The Dogs...

On April 17th I'll reading at Astor Place Barnes and Noble at 7pm. Please come. And plan to stay late, because afterwards we're heading to B Bar for a party and silent auction to raise money for my neighbors, the Louisiana SPCA. The auction items are just beginning to roll in, but here are some of the highlights:

A signed cookbook and homemade dog biscuits from Susan Orlean and Gillespie
Signed books, including A Million Little Pieces, My Friend Leonard and American Pitbull from James Frey
Photography by Cami Johnson
A gift basket for humans and dogs from Julia Szabo, the pet columnist for the New York Post
A signed mystery contribution from world traveler Elizabeth Gilbert
A signed broadside of Adam Zagajewski's "Try to Praise the Mutilated World"
A package of services including an online course and one year membership from Mediabistro.com
A one year subscription to the New York Post
A signed CD from Aimee Mann
Signed copies and images from Tom Varisco's SPOILED: Refridgerators of New Orleans
and more...
