I lived in Houston from 1976 to 1978 while my dad went to the Texas Heart Institute. All I remember about it is fire ants and thunderstorms.
Tomorrow night, at a place called Domy Books in Houston, there's going to be a free screening of Stand By Me. I don't know anything about this bookstore, but Houstonist says that it's the bookstore you've been looking for your entire life, whether you knew it or not. Based on the domy books flickr stream, I'd say it looks like a pretty cool place.
I kinda wish I'd known about this a month ago, so I could have talked to the store owner about sending some autographed copies of my books, but alas, alack, 'twas not to be.
Anyway, if you're in or near Houston and you want to see a free screening of Stand By Me in a bookstore/gallery that looks awesome, you can get all the details from Houstonist. Which is a funny name for a blog, like: "I can't believe you said that about fire ants and thunderstorms! You are such a Houstonist!"
Please note that I know about LAist, Gothamist, etc., and was just making a joke, which is now even less funny than it already was, because I explained it.
Please also note that this is a great opportunity for parents to introduce appropriately-aged kids to a great movie, great art, and great books all in the same place, which is kind of great.
