I’ll be performing a short reading with a few of my colleagues from Cal State Channel Islands this Saturday. We’ll be at the E.P. Foster library in downtown Ventura. The event starts at 5 PM. We’ll all talk/read for about 12 minutes. This will leave plenty of time afterward to buy me a beer at one of the downtown pubs, if you should so desire.
It’ll be a fun night. I work with some talented people. I’ve seen Bob and Mary read. They’re both very engaging. I haven’t seen Sofia read, but she’s a hell of a writer and a very dynamic person, so I imagine her performance will be a blast. I’ve never seen myself read, except on video, which I’m told isn’t as exciting as the live performance. Plus, all I can think when I watch videos of myself is, how did I suddenly get so old and gray? I never look like that when there’s not a mirror around.
Anyway, I promise a good time, and I hope you can come out.
The event is free. You don’t really have to buy me a beer afterward.
