I will be reading from new work! It won't be erotica, but it will be about animals in an unusual setting.

Here's a description of Writers with Drinks:

Back in 2001, writer Charlie Jane Anders set out to create a new kind of reading that jettisoned the idea of a hushed audience hanging reverentially on each carefully-crafted word, replacing it with a lively cabaret night drawing writers from a smorgasbord of genres — poetry to sci-fi to comedy to kids books. On a recent evening, heavyweight storyteller Tobias Wolff mixed it up with slam poet Taylor Mali, New York Times bestselling novelist Lev Grossman and NPR contributor Andrew Lam. Since San Francisco doesn't slack when it comes to local and national celeb authors, Writers with Drinks often sparkles with names like Lemony Snicket, Armistead Maupin, Andrew Sean Greer, Ayelet Waldman, Vendela Vida and Michelle Tea. So stop in, listen to some fierce words, and chase it with stiff drink. -- JetBlue.com.

The result is a blend of high- and lowbrow humor, literature and culture that accomplishes what Anything That Moves and Other Magazine once did: defy categories, bring together communities and expose people to new modes of expression. Much of the series' success results from the well-connected Anders' ability to mix literary luminaries and newly discovered talents... Not to be overlooked are Anders' innovative author introductions, which stitch together current events and self-commentary. -- San Francisco Chronicle, Feb. 11, 2010
