Spring means a few upcoming public events, all virtual, lined up in a row.
On April 1st, 7-9pm EDT, I’ll be the conversational half of YA author Maya Chhabra’s In Conversation launch for her new, Kirkus-starred verse novel, Chiara in the Dark, hosted by Montreal’s Argo Bookshop. As well as a reading and audience chat, we’ll be talking poetry, editing, and wherever it spirals from there.
On April 13th, I’ll be visiting a first-year Science Fiction and Fantasy class at Framingham State University, which is reading “The Bear Wife” this semester. This one isn’t likely to take interested strangers, but it’s a nice milestone to celebrate.
On May 6th, 12pm-1pm EDT, I’ll be reading at Strong Women, Strange Worlds alongside JF Garrard, Rebecca Gomez Farrell, Jenn Gott, Cerece Rennie Murphy, and Elaine Pascale. It’s six authors, eight minutes each — writer speed dating if you’re looking for a new read.
On July 17th, I’ll be giving a workshop — What Booksellers Wish You Knew About Books — as part of SpecFicNZ’s virtual professional development workshops. This is one of those dream workshops I’ve been cooking up over a space of years, because there’s so much knowledge frontline booksellers have that could make this whole gig a lot easier. It’s accessible to non-members for $10/workshop, as is that whole list of fantastic speakers.
Hope to see you there!
