Oh. Oh my. Now this is exciting. In mid-January, I'll be joining a number of awesome authors, including one I work with (I represent Samira Ahmed!), for a special reading in New York City.
Emmy Laybourne, bestselling YA author of books like Monument 14 and Sweet (this was one of my favorite books last year, you guys), hosts this wonderful event in NYC every other month or so, inviting authors to come share personal essays on stage.
It's been a long time since I read a personal essay at a reading. The last time... oh goodness, was First Person Arts in Philadelphia, maybe? Valentine's Day like two years ago? I'm not even sure. Point is, it doesn't happen often, I'm just so thrilled to be invited.
