I have a reading coming up for Midsumma Festival. It’s the very first time that I will be reading something from my new book in progress. I’ll be reading an excerpt from my piece “What are the attributes of God?” and I’m excited about sharing some new words at last.
The venue is perfect for what I wanted. It’s intimate, quirky and there is no book signing table. The venue is Kaye Sera’s BiZARRE – a shop, piano lounge and gallery owned by one of Melbourne’s very best drag queens, Kaye Sera. At capacity, 40 people can attend a show, but 25-30 people is a more comfortable fit, so please book soon if you want to be guaranteed a spot. I’ll be sharing the bill with Mikaya Heart, a US writer reading from her book My Sweet Wild Dance.
The reading is part of a series for Midsumma Festival called Words on Wednesday. More details below:
