Atlantans, mark your calendars. There’s a very cool reading in town this weekend that you’ll want to check out. Kathryn Borel will be reading from her memoir Corked on Saturday evening at the Savi Urban Market in Inman Park. There will be free wine. Free. Wine. And I trust Savi to bring the good stuff.
I first became aware of Borel when Boing Boing posted a video of the author demonstrating how to open a bottle of champagne with a sword. That’s a skill you can use. They posted another Borel video titled How to Sample Wine Without Looking Like a Clown. That one’s fairly self-explanatory.
I’ve been meaning to check out Corked ever since. I was alerted to Borel’s upcoming Atlanta visit by Russ Marshalek, sometime BGB contributor and the hardest working man in books. Russ sent an impassioned e-mail to his Atlanta friends and associates urging us all to drop everything and check out Borel’s reading. Well, I’ll let Russ speak for himself…
