Charles Rice-Gonzalez here, there, everywhere

And speaking of BAAD...

I wanted to link you to author/playwright Charles Rice-Gonzalez's calendar of readings (in support of his debut novel, Chulito: "about a tough, sexy hip hop-loving, young Latino man, coming out and coming of age in the South Bronx") and events, but I see that his site is not updated. Ahem...

Okay. So I'll just do a little copy-n-paste from his email announcement.

There's a lot here. So take your pick.
