Catherynne M. Valente at Wold Newton Reading Series

My friend Cesar Bustamante made this cool video of Catherynne M. Valente reading from her new Prester John-themed novel, The Habitation of the Blessed.* She recently read at Word Bookstore in Brooklyn as part of the Wold Newton Reading Extravaganza, with music by Brian Francis Slattery and the West Constantinople Squeezebox All-Stars, as well as dancing by Jezebel Wood, Mary Cyn, and Katie Lennon.  I’ll be reading there as part of the series with Rick Bowes in February.  I’m not sure if there will be belly dancing yet.
