I love doing readings. I love the breath – the pause – as I’m about to begin. I even love the nervous flutter in the moment before.
I love seeing hands go up after I’ve finished — interaction, q&a, lively discussion. And so I loved it when a woman at my October launch raised her hand and said she loved being read to … . Heads around her nodded as she spoke, her words clearly resonating.
The sound of a voice telling a story – the experience of “being read to” – fills a quiet need, it seems. For adults as well as for children.
As a writer, I love that I sometimes get to be that voice.
I am pleased to announce that I will be reading from my novel Other Wise on
Tuesday, November 27th at 6:30 pm at the South Berwick Library
— an early evening in a warm, well-lit place + a good book read with love —
Come fill yourself with story …
