Cicadas Infest NPR

This Friday, September 5, I’ll read from my fiction on WYPR, Baltimore’s National Public Radio station. The Signal will broadcast my reading of “Cicadas.”

“Cicadas” is a work of fiction published in New Lines from the Old Line State: An Anthology of Maryland Writers. The anthology, as Editor Allyson E. Peltier put it, “features a rich collection of contemporary literature” from “stylistically and culturally diverse writers.”

Cicadas” is about a playboy returning to Virginia to be the best man in his friend’s wedding. Cicadas are everywhere. Stu believes his friend’s newfound romance is doomed to a cicada cycle — a brief buzz of excitement followed by years of monotony.

Tune in to Baltimore’s WYPR at 88.1 FM this Friday to hear me read from the anthology. The Signal airs at 12 noon and 7 p.m. every Friday. My fiction will be featured on the programs of Friday, September 5 -- This Friday. Or, tune in online at http://www.signalradio.org.
