Hey Austinites,

This Thursday, June 5 at 7 p.m. at UT McCullough Theater in Austin, author Chuck Palahniuk will read from his new novel Snuff, introduce a preview of Choke—the upcoming film adaptation of his novel—and be interviewed by The A.V. Club's own Sean O'Neal. I have no idea if there will be refreshments.

Tickets are $35, and they include an autographed copy of Snuff. You can get 'em at texasboxoffice.com.
