Prom Night at The Booksmith

I recently had an event at San Francisco bookstore The Booksmith for Prom Night and Other Man-made Disasters, my new collection of humorous, first-person essays describing episodes in my life from childhood, school, career, and relationships.

Getting into the whole prom night spirit, some pals from my writers group hired a limo and driver to transport them the event:

And went so far as to dress in prom-appropriate attire:

I read a portion of the title story in the collection, "Prom Night," which describes the improbable circumstances under which a shy nerd like me took the homecoming queen and head cheerleader to the senior prom at my high school:

And afterward, a number of us retired to Aub Zam Zam, the venerable Persian-themed bar across the street where Herb Caen once quaffed Silver Bullets:
