These days, you’ll find Jo Scott-Coe actively sharing her ideas online and offline. She recently read from her book Teacher at Point Blank at a Pizza & Punk Rock night in West Covina, California where a reviewer praised her “edgy” and “haunting” book. You can read the full review of the August 27 event and watch a video of Jo’s reading!—here.


You can also catch Jo Scott-Coe at the 10th Annual West Hollywood Book Fair’s Poetry/Hybrid Stage on October 2 for “Tongue and Groove.” More details about this lively sampling of literature from “a stewardess, a teacher, a tour guide, and a Korean” can be found on the Hollywood Book Fair’s website.
