Last October 2019, I did my first two readings in the Bay Area. One was at the Book Arts showcase at APAture 2019 hosted by Kearny St. Workshop and another was a solo show at Wolfman Books in Oakland. What a time!
I thought only three people would attend the solo show... miraculously, all the seats were filled and I had an audience. Amazing!
If you were there, thank you! If you sent me an email wishing me luck, thank you too!
At the reading, I read several pieces from my zine series. Some stories were sad. Some were happy. Some were funny and a few were serious. People's faces changed from one story to another and I got very nervous because some of them looked so shocked, like this -> :O
I really enjoyed reading what I wrote to people. I think I rehearsed this when I was about seven years old.
Speaking of reading, do you have a book or reading recommendation for 2020? Myself and a few others who are reading this now are ready to hoard the books.
My recommendations are:
- The Seas by Samantha Hunt
- Stories of Eva Luna by Isabelle Allende.
Let's make a reading list on the comment section!
Cheers, cheers, and blow-kiss,
