I was in a great reading tonight, co-sponsored by THE SAN FRANCISCAN (a new glossy print magazine where they're going to publish a profile of me by Jayne Martin) and THE RACKET (a SF-based reading series and small weekly zine). Eight readers, fifty audience members.
My birthday tomorrow. We're getting takeout from the Burmese restaurant in Dublin that I love. Planning to attend a Zoom reading in Ireland to hear Nuala O'Connor read from BIRDIE in the afternoon. (She sent BIRDIE to me in the mail, a wonderful gift.) I feel connected to so many writers and old friends all over the world right now. But also so disconnected with the restrictions on travel and even leaving the house becoming so much more stringent, the surge of Covid cases getting so scary.
