On top of eradicating a much-loved local chain, the closure of Olsson’s bookstores also played havoc with the schedules of a few authors who had readings scheduled at the stores. At least one writer has found a new date and place to do a little self-promotion: Michael Kimball, Baltimore author of the novel Dear Everybody and guy who’ll write your life story on a postcard if you ask—-will now speak Wednesday, Nov. 5, at the Georgetown Barnes & Noble. He’ll be joined by fellow Baltimorean Jessica Anya Blau, author of The Summer of Naked Swim Parties. For more on Dear Everybody, check out the video below:


If you’re an author whose Olsson’s reading has been rescheduled, drop a line and/or make mention of it in the comments.
