I did two very small, but sweet readings this week.
The first was for RyePRIDE, Ryerson University’s queer student association. A total of nine people attended, I read from Stealing Nasreen, and we had a very intimate discussion after–about the writing process, identity, character motivations and touring–with each attendee asking me questions. I really loved the interaction–something that often doesn’t happen at the bigger readings.
And yesterday I was at the Brockton Triangle Summer Festival, an event organized by and for neighbours of Brockton Village–once again an intimate gathering of neighbours, many of whom approached me to ask questions about the novel and writing it (in the photo, our neighbour’s baby is on “stage” with me).
This week, I’m off to Philadelphia and New York. If you are in the area, come check them out. You’ll find details in the “where I’m reading next” section.
