Last night I read “Go East” at the Library Lounge, a lovely performance space at Telephone Bar. It’s an intimate room for about 30-40 people, lined with antique mirrors and candles, and there’s a fireplace on the stage with more candles. My legs were trembling pretty hard (no one claimed to notice), and luckily, I didn’t shake my way into the fireplace and die a firey death. I’d agonized all week over where to add he-said’s and she-said’s to make the dialogue more comprehensible to the ear (thanks to a seminar I’m taking on teaching listening!). In all, the reading was a fun time.
My next reading is coming up pretty soon! Very much looking forward to that too.
