Joe Tone, former editor of the Dallas Observer, moved away from Dallas a couple months ago, but he returns tonight to talk about how much he hates both Dallas and kittens. Oh, also, he’ll talk about his new book, Bones: Brothers, Horses, Cartels, and the Borderland Dream. Here are three reasons why you should come to Interabang Books at Preston and Royal at 7 p.m. to catch his road show:
1. Because I’m going play host for this panel of one, and I’m going to ask Joe some really tough questions. I’m going to start with a deep exploration of the state of his marriage before I move on to what he thinks about the Confederate statues. But I promise: we’ll get around to the book.
2. Because before we go to Interabang, I am going to drag Joe to the Old Monk to “prepare” for our conversation by forcing him to do shots of Jameson. Joe will be on Think today at 1 p.m., and, honestly, I plan to ask all the same questions that Krys Boyd asks him on her show, but the answers I’ll get will be way different.
3. Because Bones is a really good book, and Joe is a smart, funny guy. It should be a fun time.
