Rockslinga pal Uwem Akpan will be reading at Shaman Drum tonight at 7. Uwem's new book, Say You're One of Them, is finally out. I've been waiting for this book ever since I read "My Parents' Bedroom." (The book's title is a line from that story.) Check out that story here, and be sure to get your hands on a copy of the collection. Uwem's child narrators are unforgettable. He currently lives in Zimbabwe and is only doing 4 cities, so if you're in the area, be sure to come!
