I’m thrilled to be asked back to the Mixed Roots Festival again — this year as a reader! Last year I closed the festival with a performance. This year, I’m in the Readings Program I on Saturday @ 1pm. This is a wonderful two day festival. It begins at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, the 12th and concludes Sunday at 7 p.m.
Check out mxroots.org for more info.
Drop an RSVP in the comment box and I’ll send you a free gift. I’d love to know who’ll be there.
I’m very excited about this one! I’ve been to events in this series so many times, so it’s a huge thrill to be on the other side of the proscenium.
Though we’re at the library, please note that the subject matter is primarily suited for mature audiences. I’ll read an excerpt from my essay in The Black Body along with five other writers from the anthology. Meri Nana-Ama Danquah, the book’s editor, will moderate. Nzingha Clarke, David Goldsmith, Peter J. Harris, Philip Littell, Jason Luckett, and Gail Wronsky will read.

I don’t think Dan and I have shared a mic since the nineties, and it was definitely nothing like this. I’m excited to meet Julie after all these years. I don’t know Lisa yet, but Susan is a great writer, so this should be a very good night. Hope to see you.
