From July 1 until around early-mid September, I’ll be living in LA! During this period, I’ll be doing a few readings in west coast USA.

In July, I’ll be doing 3 readings in California. First up, I’ll be in San Francisco on the 12th, reading at an event by RADAR Productions, which is run by San Francisco writer Michelle Tea. I first did a reading at a RADAR Productions event in Berkeley last year and I’m thrilled to be doing another reading for RADAR. This event takes place at the Tenderloin National Forest (which is not actually a national forest). The other performers in the line-up sound great:

The following Thursday, I’ll be reading at homo-centric, a monthly LGBTQI reading series in LA. Many fantastic artists have performed at this series  (including Toronto writers Farzana Doctor and Vivek Shraya, and LA’s Ryka Aoki). The event is held at a great indie bookstore and cafe too. Here are the details:

The very next day, I’ll be doing a reading in San Diego.
