Hey guys! It’s last second, I know, but if you’re in SoCal, I’ll be giving a speechy-thingy tomorrow at Casa Youth Shelter’s 10th Annual Teen Summit! It’s open to the public, although Casa prefers that if you choose to attend, you RSVP (more info on the Facebook page for the event here). The summit begins at 9:15 a.m. and I’ll be speaking from around 11:30 a.m. – noon.
Casa is really great – They do a lot of homeless outreach and I’ve volunteered with them a few times handing out clothes/food/water to the homeless population here in Santa Ana that hangs around the Orange County Courthouse. They totally deserve so much support and recognition.
Also, if you come to Los Al tomorrow, I can guarantee you that the Pasty Kitchen on Katella, a mile away from the event, serves the absolute best food (pasties!) you will ever taste – I grew up going there. It’s this tiny little hole-in-the-wall family-owned place that’s a Los Al institution and is effing DELICIOUS. It’s actually my favorite food of all time, even better than pizza. I recommend the chicken pasty, but they also have beef and vegetarian, plus some dessert-y type stuff. Honestly, the main reason I decided to do this event was to have an excuse to go stock up on a few pastys for the next few days (just kidding! Sort of. But in all seriousness, it’s super-tasty. Try it, you’ll like it.)
Otherwise, SoCal-ites will also get a chance to swing by and say hi at the La Habra Public Library on August 19th at 2:30 p.m., where I’ll be doing a reading/Q&A! Bring your copy and I’d be happy to sign it :)
Lastly, I apologize profusely for the bunch of gobbledygook code or whatever at the top of my site’s pages right now…I’m as baffled as you likely are, but I’m working on figuring out what the problem is and getting it resolved quickly. In the meantime – so sorry! :(
Update: Said gobbledygook code was actually caused via changes by my host server, which have now been rectified. Whew! So glad…that was driving me bonkers.
