Davy Rothbart shares new essays at Village Books


Davy Rothbart, who splits his time between Ann Arbor, Mich., and Los Angeles, reads from his newest book of essays, "My Heart is an Idiot," at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 6, at Village Books, 1200 11th St. Rothbart falls helplessly in love with pretty much every girl he meets, but rarely is the feeling reciprocated. But even when things don't work out, he finds meaning and humor in every moment.

Rothbart, a frequent contributor to NPR's "This American Life" and a variety of magazines, he is the founder of Found Magazine and the editor of its bestselling anthologies.
