READING: Tuesday, June 19—Join me!

Gathering and communing are essential aspects of the human experience. I find that when I gather with others I invariably learn more about myself. I learn more about who I am and who I’m not and who I could be if only I dared. On Tuesday, June 19, I will be joining another writer to kick of the Kindred Reading series in Brooklyn. I hope you will come and bring your energy and good vibrations; I hope you will come and give of your presence and receive whatever ideas or energies are available to you. I hope you will come and listen to Jenn and I share the fruits of our labor, and to witness to the fact that speculative writers of color are here!

Books will be on sale. See details below.
