My dear friend, Alexi Zentner, will be reading a short story this evening at the Mercantile in conjunction with Slice Magazine. In addition to being a wonderful friend, who has really buoyed me when I've needed it, Alexi is a tremendous writer. His honors include the Pushcart and O'Henry prizes; in 2008 his story "Touch" was a jury favorite. Later this year, one of his stories will appear in the Atlantic Monthly.
