If you weren't able to be at Off Square Books for John Brandon's reading on July 14, no worries, you can now listen to it right here. John read from his excellent new novel, Citrus County--published by McSweeney's. The book will be featured on the cover of this Sunday's (July 18) New York Times Book Review. The reading began shortly after the large crowd sipped on "Citrus County Sangria" and got their new copies of Citrus County and their old copies of John's first book, Arkansas, signed. The opening act, after a brief introduction from Square Books owner Richard Howorth, was Jack Pendarvis reading from his monthly column in The Believer magazine (also published by McSweeney's). John followed by reading a section from Citrus County involving Mr. Hibma--the junior high teacher. So enough reading about the event now you can listen.
