How do authors prepare for live readings? What is the draw of a live reading? In this episode I talk about how I approach live readings, set within the context of my upcoming reading in Kansas City with authors Brandon Tietz and Jesus Angel Garcia. Spoiler alert: I agree with you, live author readings tend to be kinda boring. And I agree with you too that the boring angle should be exiled.
Show notes and mentions:
- The Czar Bar reading with Brandon Tietz and Jesus Angel Garcia
- Jesus Angel Garcia’s nationwide book reading tour
- The Slap n’ Tickle gallery event

About Caleb J. Ross
Caleb began writing his sophomore year of undergrad study when, tired of the formal art education then being taught, he abandoned the pursuit in the middle of a compositional drawing class. Major-less and fearful of losing his financial aid, he signed up to seek a degree in English Literature for no other reason than his lengthy history with the language. Coincidentally, this decision not only introduced him to writing but to reading as well. Prior this transition he had read three books. One of which he understood.
