Sept. 26, Broadside Bookshop, Northampton, Massachusetts, 7 p.m.

Readings from the teen idol essay collection Idol Talk, edited by Elizabeth Searle and Tamra Wilson. I’ll join Elizabeth Searle, Leslea Newman and Leslie Lawrence in reading the pieces we contributed to the book, mine focusing on noneother than Bobby Orr, for whom I swooned back then. Broadside Bookshop, 247 Main St., Northampton, Massachusetts.
