The Naked and the Nude

| 0 comments

And speaking of naked (in my last post), I found out this week that I am one of five finalists for the 2nd Annual Naked Girls Reading Literary Honors!

The lovely naked ladies of the Everleigh Club in Chicago will be reading the five selections on November 18, and then they will announce the winner. (You can read excerpts from each finalist here.)

I’ll be sure to post more information when I read it. I hope to see some of you there!
