In this delightful deep forest library, I shared snippet readings from Bones of Starlight with people closely inhabiting a connected and intimate setting. Beyond the library, people shared beautiful art, delicious food, and great music. It was a pleasure to be a part of this grand meeting at a special time.
Friends and colleagues, may you ever prosper. I will consider availability for your library-warmings. Try it, just one breathing author. Or more, with any others. Pick your nearest.
Tomorrow night I’m going to visit the San Juan Island Library Writers’ Open Mic. I’ll only be around for the first portion, but I’m happy to revisit this event that’s been ongoing for years, hosted by Pamela Herber of Shadowspinners Press. Welcome visitors, works in progress, published authors, written media variety, all genre. Open format round robin.
Saturday Nov. 9 at 7pm, San Juan Island Library, Friday Harbor WA
I joined in for the equinox Open Stage last night at the Alternative Library in Bellingham WA, reading some of the Arkuda/Soleil/library storylines from Fire On All Sides. It was a treat to finally go this wonderful place, which opened about a year ago. On stage were poets, strings, pianists, originals, covers, melons, and me, in muck boots and still wearing my coat.
