Get Your Tongue & Groove On with Mark Sarvas

L.A.'s very own debut novelist and litblogger extraordinaire, Mark Sarvas, will be reading from his first novel Harry, Revised tomorrow night at 6pm @ Hotel Cafe as part of the Tongue & Groove reading series. Harry, Revised is set in L.A, features several of your favorite & not so favorite neighborhoods, highlights the darker perils of plastic surgery, examines a bevy of relationships gone awry, and offers a hilarious take on the bizarre and oh-so-L.A. spinning class culture. Sarvas is an excellent reader, especially with such funny material to read and with The Hotel Cafe as a backdrop, it promises to be a quintessentially L.A. literary evening.

Other poets and writers rounding out the "tongue" part of the night include Judeth Oden, Susan Hayden, David Darmstaedter, Corrie Greathouse and Even Brandstein. The "groove" portion of the evening will be handled by Christiane Szabo. If you can't find room in your cold, dark heart (or your crazy busy schedule) to make it out tomorrow night, you can enjoy a little tongue and groove on your own time, by listening to clips of past events at the Tongue & Groove site.
