This weekend Borders Books and Music hosted a very cool event that I was lucky enough to be at. It was a moderated round table discussion with Chuck Palahniuk, Clark Gregg and Sam Rockwell. The questions were good, and the banter between the three men was priceless. They had the audience laughing so hard, people were honestly covering their face and trying to hold back tears.
Here are the details again:
Saturday, September 13 – Los Angeles - 7:00pm
NOTE: This event will NOT include an autographing. No memorabilia please. There will be pre-signed, movie-tie-in-versions of CHOKE (signed by Chuck only) as well as pre-signed, selected backlist available for sale at the event.

Many of you have been asking me about CHOKE lately, as it's opening later this month. There's been concerns that it won't be in your city, or you won't be able to find where it's playing. So let me take this time to answer some of you questions:
When is CHOKE being released?
CHOKE is being released theatrically on Friday, September 26th, 2008.
I heard that it will only be in "select" theaters though.
Hello all! Hope you're all enjoying the start of your weekend. As you know, Chuck is just getting back from a few events in NY to promote the upcoming Sep 26th release of 'Choke'! I expect we'll see some pics and clips from those two events soon. In the meantime, he just sent over the September essay, "Tell A Lie, Bury A Gun".
Hey folks! This is just a reminder that Chuck is doing an event at Borders in Los Angeles on September 13th! Not to mention, he'll have Clark Gregg and Sam Rockwell with him! I had the chance to interview Clark Gregg in person on Tuesday, and he's a very awesome dude. You'll all want to get the chance to see him speak.
Amy Hempel is a tough interview.
I don't mean that to say she's rude or doesn't answer questions, it's just that this interview started more than two years ago.
The first time I approached her for this was Aug. 10, 2006, at a reading in the park at Union Square, where she joined other writers to read excerpts from Unleashed: Poems by Writers' Dogs.
By the end of the reading the skies opened. The kind of rain that changes the direction of rivers. She ducked under a tent and stayed to chat with friends and fans. When the crowd cleared, I made my pitch.
